12 Years a Slave

This is the One Minute Review of Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave.  Featuring a stellar cast, terrific directing and editing, and a nearly Shakespearean script, let's spoil the review right now: best film of the year so far. If only for the superb acting of Chiwetel Ejiofor and newcomer Lupita Nyong'o, this is the movie that could take home the most statuettes on Oscar night.
