12 Years a Slave

Steve McQueen's emotionally jarring biopic depicts slavery in a way that few, if any, have ever dared.


Drama

Zach Hale
Slavery was a dark and shameful time in American history — unequivocally the darkest. Yet while the era has been portrayed on the silver screen in countless films, director Steve McQueen (ShameHunger) presents it with unprecedented realism in 12 Years a Slave — one of the most profoundly gut-wrenching, visceral works of 21st-century cinema you're bound to encounter.

The Wolverine / Prisoners

Hugh times two.


Action

Rod Lott
The Wolverine is the X-Men spin-off we should have received four years ago with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Like the franchise's characters, the first mutation is not necessarily the best; whereas the 2009 version sought to be a comic book, the 2013 error-correcting reboot aims higher: comic book art.
