1180

12years

12 years a slave (2013)

A grand, conventional, even old-fashioned Hollywood message movie. Marred by loose ends and an unexpected inability to take advantage of the undeniably dramatic historical source material.

Solomon Northup deserved better. Not bad, but not in my book of institutionalized brutality.
