    Very good cinematography and directing. This is truly a fine film. However I do not think it is a masterpiece. It is raw, beautiful and brutal but there is a lack of development in characters which left me irritated. No doubt impressive performances by Ejiofor and Fassbender, but unfortunately for them, their characters and talents doesn't get challenged enough. So even though they put up very good performances you kind of feel like they got away with it easy. Which is too bad. There is to much "look how slavery was on the outside" instead of telling us the story through the characters and their development.
    Before I sound too grumpy I will say that its definitely one of the better films this year.

    Eh Mr Zimmer you're supposed to write new music not just reheat your Inception rift in a completely different type of film. 3 years 3 months ago

    I absolutely agree that Steve McQueen's camera positions, angles and movements were absolutely what made the film. The acting was good, but not oscar worthy; the story (albeit it a true one) showed the physical horrors of slavery perfectly; yet, the emotional? Not so much. It is the first movie I have seen that will be up for Best Picture, and I have a feeling there are much better choices out there. 3 years 4 months ago
