A very good movie

Even though I heard it would be a tough watch, it still ended up being a massively depressing movie to watch. Of course, the horror displayed was tremendous but, above all, I thought this movie had a terrible mirror effect. Indeed, even though I’m somewhat optimistic and believe that men are usually good, this movie reminds you that men can be evil, especially to one another. Furthermore, I’m ... read more

Essential, though not 2013's best

"I don't want to survive. I want to live."

12 Years a Slave carries the Oscar-friendly "based on a true story" label, as it tells the devastating real tale of Solomon Northup, a free African American who was kidnapped and sold into slavery during the 19th Century. Later penning a memoir following the tragedy, Northup's dreadful ordeal has only been previously dramatised in a forgott... read more

Emotional, Uncomfortable but essential viewing.

When tasked with re-creating a real life story, directors must keep the foundation of the story while adding just the right touch of film magic in order to create something special. When taking in 2013's 12 Years a Slave everything about this film seems generally authentic and emotional, the only thing used to enhance the experience is a beautiful cinematography that accentuates the feel of the ha... read more

" What a great movie! Dark, racist and very unpleasant, but also amazing. Forget 'Captain Phillips', '12 Years A Slave' is the new king of 2013 cinema! "


filmbuilder posted a review 17 hours, 58 minutes ago

What a great movie

“What's the most unpleasant drama you've ever seen? Is it 'Passion of the Christ' or something like that? For now, mine would be '12 Years A Slave', the Oscar winning movie of 2013. '12 Years A Slave' features bad torture such as whipping and hanging. This movie heavily focuses on racism as African-American Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is kidnapped and sold into slavery for twelve years (clue; it's in the title). Before kidnapping, Solomon had a life as a violonist living with his wife and children in New York. That's why "I don't want to survive, I want to live!" is a popular line from this movie.

Chiwetel Ejiofor delivers an amazing performance as Northup. He deserves his BAFTA. I have not seen 'Dallas Buyers Club' yet but I will decide whether the Oscar and Golden Globe ” read more

When I was 31... movie diary, August 2014 (27 movies items)

"August 13, 2014 Polish title: Zniewolony. 12 Years a Slave (The Captive. 12 Years a Slave) I rate at nearly 9/10 (8.8). The whole thing was very interesting and definitely moving, some of the scenes caused tears. For full satisfaction I missed more dramatic at the end, and unfortunately, the whole liberation ended within 10 minutes."

"Ihan ok Steve McQueenin leffa amerikkalaisesta miehestä joka myydän orjaksi. Ei niin hyvä kuin Shame tai etenkään Hunger mutta sisältää vahvoja suorituksia näyttelijöiltä. Paul Dano kävi välissä nostamassa vitutuslevelit kohilleen. Fassbender on nousemassa nyky-Hollywoodin nimissä kärkeä kohdin mielestäni ainakin."

The Best of 2013 (25 movies items)

" It is easy to sympathize the characters of the film. Taking one's freedom and turning him into a slave is the main idea of the story, when Solomon is one sunny day kidnapped by the slave dealers and soon sold far away from his home. Film is full of strong performances, including Academy award winner Lupita Nyong'o, Chiwetel Ejiofor in the leading role, Michael Fassbender as a furious cotton farmer and one of my favorites, Paul Dano as a bad guy as always. The film gives its best through Edwin"

2014 Yılının En İyi Filmleri (16 movies items)

"Solomon Northup’ın 1853 yılında yazdığı ve kendi hikayesini anlattığı romanından uyarlanan filmde Northup, ABD’nin kuzeyinde yaşayan özgür bir insan, tanınmış bir keman virtüözüyken kaçırılarak köle yapılması ve geçirdiği kölelik yılları anlatılmaktadır. Film, En İyi Film dalında Oscar Ödülü kazanırken, Lupita Nyong'o da En İyi Yardımcı Kadın Oyuncu Oscarı'nı kazandı"
