While I think that [McQueen] has a knack for conceptually interesting, installation-type long takes, I think he’s essentially tone-deaf when it comes to performance, and skirts by on casting… Because [the movie] can’t organize that sense of catharsis it so badly needs, it just feels as though McQueen is scurrying for an exit.

There’s so much artistry in this rich, subtle movie. There’s dark humour in Epps’ delusions, as when his crops fail and he claims the slaves are responsible (“Don’t bring no Biblical plagues on him, y’hear?” he warns, passing them off to another master). There’s visual beauty in the shady, humid landscapes, the woods where a slave might stumble across a casual lynching, or a party of Native Americans.

12 Years does not care to showboat; its defining quality is rigour, which it needs to convey real pain. Its formalism is directed at an emotional truth, one that resonates because McQueen is committed to it unflinchingly. This is Solomon Northup’s story. But in its conviction and style, this is very much Steve McQueen’s film.
