  1. Good review Alyson. Said it many times before, but I guess I’ll say it again: Not the perfect movie some have been making it out as being, but still very effective in its own, disturbingly realistic way.

  2. For me, this film ties with Gravity as 2013′s best. That scene with Solomon, Epps and Patsey with this whip is probably the greatest piece of filmmaking in the last 12 months. Great review, Alyson.

    • Thanks Rodney, that scene was something else, powerful, tough and watching it just made you feel so helpless. I saw this movie back in the fall and many scenes still linger in my mind.
