Default 12 Years A Slave

This movie is making the rounds in film festivals and apparently this flick is amazing. It's directed by Steve McQueen and stars Chiwetal Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, and Brad Pitt. It's being called the Schindler's List of slavery. Can't wait to check it out

I haven't seen Hunger or Shame but McQueen has a great track record and the cast looks awesome. Fassbender, Cumberbatch, Pitt, Giamatti, Ejiofor, etc. I will definitely keep an eye out for it.

Just came back from seeing it. There were some scenes where you could hear a pin drop in the theatre.

Also, there seems to be pattern: all major hyped up hollywood summer blockbusters are visually entertaining but have almost do depth to them, all movies that come from independant movie festivals like Sundance and Toronto are visually entertaining and powerful

Most of those films are unwatchable, needless, pretentious drivel.

I think he was complimenting the movie, saying it is so powerful that people were dead silent. If you were being sarcastic, it was lost in translation.

Saw the movie today, and it was very powerful and hard to watch at times. 9.5/10
