#FUMovieReviews 12 Years A Slave [Biopic] 8/10

I finally got round to viewing British director; Steve McQueen’s 3rd feature film, 12 Years A Slave. Based on the memoirs of Solomon Northup, a free man kidnapped & sold into slavery. Powerfully uncomfortable, with it’s unflinching depiction of Humanity’s darkest blemish. Long drawn out shots accompanied by brooding silence make this as difficult & compelling as any painful truth can be.
