    I was not and am not involved in slavery and thus am not ashamed of that area of human bondage at all. I couldn't care less about this film. I already saw Roots in the 70's and that was boring. I read an interesting book about slavery once, look it up if you can bother: Giles Milton: White Gold - North Africa's One Million European Slaves.

    Well said, my thoughts exactly, strange there's not any films about German companies, still thriving today, that were happy to use slave-labour within living memory, they should have been dissolved at the end of World war II in the name of decency.

    Me too. I was not nor am not involved in slavery. I too am unashamed.

    I will not be paying the equivalent of a restaurant dinner to buy crocodile tears.

    I think the shame is: there are up to 21 million people in slavery today.

    On a side note: Alex Haley agreed to a financial settlement after a court case in which it was put to him: that he copied portions of Harold Courlander's book The African, when he wrote Roots.

    An eye-opener of a movie. It would not be wrong to say that Lupita Nyong'o held the entire film on her shoulders - she was the emotional epicenter of the film. A near-documentary type of film, but a hard-hitting storyline. Forces you to think. Perhaps that's why 12 Years A Slave has won a slew of awards and critical acclaim - including the Golden Globe for best picture.
