Worst and Best Black Films of 2013
1. 12 Years a Slave
12 Years a Slave was degrading, relentless, tortureful, and goery, but then again so was slavery. This film found it’s limit on what’s acceptable and pushed passed it. It forces you to squirm as you are forced to understand for years this was life for blacks forced into slavery. Chitewel Ejoifor gave a career changing performance, but new actress Lupita Nygon’o demanded her presence in Hollywood with her portrayal. If you want to understand and can handle the real America, this is the film to see.
