1. 12 Years a Slave [DVD] [2013]

I found this disappointing. Long, slow and at times difficult to follow what was going on. One's understanding was not helped by the very poor diction at many points. The subject itself does not make for pleasant watching so it cannot be an entertainment. I expected a portrayal of cruel white racists. What surprised me was how destructive the hypocritical slave owners were as to their property. Why kill a man before you could sell him? Why beat your best slave ? One sees that evil is not merely bad but ultimately irrational.
