Flew by. More of an experience than a movie. Why hasn't it taken 45 years since 2001: A Space Odyssey to get this close to the reality of space in film. No sound. No gravity. Massive challenges and risks. Bullock held it all together masterfully. I've seen a lot of sfx but I can't fathom how they created this complete zero G setting.
12 Years a Slave
Superb acting ( Fassbender and and were terrific)
Very difficult to watch. Hardly what you'd call entertaining.
But a very important, horrific historical tale. To perhaps a similar degree as Schindlers list.
The inhuman treatment of the slaves / no recognition of fellow man - (portrayed not just by the owners and traders, but of the ladies of the plantations as well. Truly shocking. But what would have done faced with this as a passerby like mr x in the south ?
Heart wrenching, so many negative emotions exercised. But, survival. Take nothing for granted.
I didn't hear any gasps I the audience, but many deep breaths (mine included).
Forgot my wallet - any connection ? Drastic irony, ...
Yes, it was the Joaquin Phoenix show - but I didn't tire of him and the massive breadth of character, mood and emotion - superb performance. The plot walked a very fine line of believability, but I could only few technical possibilities.
Like a superb collection of artistic vignettes. Captivating characters wrapped around a clever plot. Fantastic cast and I loved the soundtrack too.
