moviereviews7 12 Years a Slave ~ R ~ 2013 ~ #SteveMcQueen #ChiwetelEjiofor #PaulGiamatti #MichaelFassbender #BenedictCumberbatch #BradPitt #LupitaNyongo #PaulDano The true story of a free black man named Solomon Northup who was kidnapped & set as a slave in the south during the mid-1800's. So basically I've put off this Best Picture for such a long time because I'd heard that it was a difficult movie to watch. However, I only found one scene really fitting to that description. Yes, the topic is slavery, but it's a subject that's been many times before & with more cringe-worthy content. Now, the style & texture of the film was incredible, & definitely worth remembering. However, I did not find the story to be as developing or extraordinary as it had been hyped for me. Ejiofor was great, & Nyong'o was pretty good, but I didn't see as much as I was hoping for from that undisputed Best Supporting Actress Academy Award. & I already said this but I feel that it deserves extra emphasis to conclude after my critiquing: the cinematography was amazing. If it wasn't for Cuáron's breathtaking visuals in "Gravity", I would have easily said this should have won Best Cinematography. I may not agree with the fact that this own Best Picture, but I sure can understand why it did. 4.5/5 #12YearsaSlave #SolomonNorthup #slave #slavery #Georgia #biography #truestory #cotton #drama #BestPicture #Oscar #AcademyAward #movie #film #moviereview 4h
