Movie Diary 10/23/2013

12 Years a Slave (Steve McQueen, 2013). Not the film about American slavery, but a film specific to the story of Solomon Northup (Chiwitel Ejiofor) – which is fine. Interesting that the film is no more an exercise in raw docu-style realism than Django Unchained was, different in tone though the two films may be. (full review 11/1)
