In another Best Picture nominee, Chiwetel Ejiofor is a free black man circa 1840 who gets lured down to Washington, DC and sold into slavery.  He endures bigotry and back breaking labor, his body riven with scars; the director of photography uses long lenses to focus in on every pore of Ejiofor’s tortured face. Michael Fassbinder also appears, as a drunk and sadistic slave owner.  The movie is visceral and unbearably intense, but, unlike most Hollywood films, all of this violence is actually meaningful.  Worth watching.
