Maybe not a movie you need to see more than once, but riveting and unforgettable while it lasts. Steve McQueen is an outstanding talent.

It is filled with pure raw emotion. It’s realistic and horrifying depiction of the American slave trade is hair raising. The acting is superb, especially the actors which portrayed Solomon and the owner of the second plantation. This movie is colour graded beautifully and is scored with tenderness and gracefulness. It is a true masterpiece and succeeds in telling its tale of sorrow and hope.
Score: 64% Best Streak: 4
Great film but probably not as in depth and revolutionary as it ad first seemed to audiences. Visceral in parts and a really powerful performance from Lupita Nyongo helps make this film memorable
Score: 69% Best Streak: 8
A very important film. Hard to watch but made in a raw and honest way that gives you an unflinching look at one of humanity's greatest crimes
