    Solomon Survives: The Modernity Of ’12 Years a Slave’

    From behind the iron-barred basement windows of a faceless tenement building nestled alongside so many others that look just like it, a man frantically cries out for aid. His words echo fruitlessly, bouncing between alleyways and sidewalks as they’re smothered by the brick facade of the structures surrounding him; his pleas goes unanswered, leaving him utterly trapped, robbed of his freedom and with no means of alerting his family or his friends – hours away in Saratoga – of his plight. But he continues to make appeals to the deserted street, and as he does, the camera pans up, revealing that this heartbreaking display of hopelessness and isolation is unfolding…

    G-S-T Review…12 Years A Slave

    Steve McQueen, to put it bluntly, makes bold movies. But really that’s still a gross understatement. In just his third feature film he tackles slavery – not an easy topic in the least. Even well respected and successful directors like Tarantino and Spielberg had nearly a dozen projects/films under their belt before taking on this subject or anything close to it. True, Tarantino’s Django Unchained was more a throwback to Peckinpah’s Westerns than an essay on slavery, but even the masterful Spielberg took some baby steps with films like The Color Purple and Empire of the Sun before tackling both Schindler’s List and Amistad. An up and coming filmmaker, McQueen is already…

    Sweet Trailer…Steve McQueen's '12 Years A Slave'

    With fierce conviction to tell stories that some might consider offensive or taboo, director Steve McQueen has twice proved himself to be an unflinching filmmaker. He gave us Hunger, then followed that with Shame and now his latest film 12 Years A Slave, adapted from the novel of the same name, tells the incredible true story of Solomon Northup, a free man who was kidnapped in 1841 and forced into slavery at a Louisiana cotton plantation. Facing cruelty from his slave owner, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist will forever alter…

    Steve McQueen's '12 Years A Slave' Opening Pushed Up To October

    Steve McQueen is an astounding up and coming filmmaker, full stop. With only two films to date (one of which, his first, is in the Criterion collection) he’s made a name for himself as a visceral storyteller who takes a lot of chances in both a visual and narrative sense. His upcoming film 12 Years A Slave (one of our most anticipated films of  2013) was originally set for a Christmas time release but Fox Searchlight will move the opening from December 27 th to October. The film tells the story (written by John Ridley from the book by the actual Solomon Northup) set in the pre-Civil War United States where Solomon Northup…

    We’ve closed the books on 2012 here at Go, See, Talk!– you can catch up on all of our individual takes on the year here, here, here, and here— and officially declared it “great”.

Indeed, nearly half of the entries on this list comfortably underneath that distinct storytelling umbrella, many of quite high profile, and that’s not even to…

    Roundtable Interview Discussion with ‘Shame’ Director Steve McQueen & Actor Michael Fassbender

    On November 17th, writer/director Steve McQueen and actor Michael Fassbender stopped in Dallas as part of a whirlwind PA tour to promote their new movie Shame. McQueen and Fassbender held this very private round table discussion to talk about their brilliant and controversial film. Having worked together on the powerful fact-based film Hunger the two have undeniable chemistry and are talented entertainers of the highest merit. After being simply floored by Shame at the screening a few weeks before Thanksgiving I could not stop thinking about the film and as such had a boat load of questions for the them. Go,See,Talk and some select local media outlets sat in on (and directly across from I…

    G-S-T Review…Shame

    Addictions come in all shapes and sizes. Most of the time an addiction is based on a series of lies but nearly all of the time it involves us telling lies to ourselves. Shame is a candid story that gets to the core of a man in crisis and inevitable deconstruction due to his unflinching and unsavory lifestyle. Similar to what Darren Aronofsky did with Requiem For A Dream, writer/director Steve McQueen (Hunger) gives us a slow-paced downward spiral of self-destruction that is painful to watch yet you simply cannot turn away.

    Sweet Trailer…'Shame'

    From writer/director Steve McQueen comes the controversial and sexual drama Shame. It’s about Brandon, a 30-something New Yorker, who’s private life (which allows him to indulge his sexual addiction) begins to unravel after his sister moves into his apartment for an indefinite stay. Starring Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) and Carey Mulligan (Drive) this trailer gives just a hint at the anxious intensity to be expected in McQueen’s follow up to Hunger. Have a look, it’s pretty riveting… Wow huh? Seemingly in the same vein of Black Swan and other dark but powerful films like it, McQueen’s latest feature is a courageous exploration of modern life’s extremes. Despite the controversy around the…
