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

“REVIEW IN SPANISH.

No te dejes engañar por la gente que dijo que es solo un oscar-bait barato, porque el filme no solo tiene merecido su premio a mejor película del 2013 por la academia, sino que también es otra prueba del enorme talento del director Steve McQueen, el ya mencionado McQueen a la hora de plasmar la época que retrata no tiene ni un solo pelo en la lengua y retrata todo con crudeza total tal de forma realista, sin exagerar y teniendo un gran conocimiento sobre que enfocar en la pantalla y que no, gran ejemplo son todas las escenas de tortura o latigazos donde más que enfocarse a la violencia en sí, se enfoca a la cara de los implicados para que podamos ver lo que sienten en ese momento y sacando a relucir todas las excelentes actuaciones del filme, o ni hablar ” read more

If There Had Been 5 (9 movies items)

" 2013 is a bit tricky. 12 Years a Slave, Gravity and American Hustle were all locked in and it, at one point, appeared that any of them could win. After that, things get pretty murky at #4 and #5. Out of the other six nominated films, Captain Phillips seems like the safest bet. While it never really managed to win anything major, it was present at every major awards ceremony, and it was a critical and commercial hit, something that never hurts. Number five could really have gone in a number of "
