Toronto 2013: '12 Years a Slave' Review

Here it is, my review of the most acclaimed movie of the fall film festival season. I loved director Steve McQueen's last movie, Shame, so my expectations were high. 12 Years a Slave is quite good, but it's no Shame, which is hardly a shame. Ugh, yes, I made that joke. I'm sorry. My review is up at Screen International.
