Twitter again erupts in praise of another likely masterpiece. Two days ago we got dazzled reaction from Venice festival-goers about Gravity. Tonight, 12 Years a Slave has stunned those in attendance in Telluride.
@AwardsDaily Another powerful collaboration for McQueen and Fassbender. They make magic together. #Telluride
@MrDanZak 12 YEARS A SLAVE = Masterful rendering of intolerable cruelty Standing O for McQ, Ejiofor, Pitt, Fass & stunning Lupita Nyong’o
@csoberanis7 12 YEARS A SLAVE is a startlingly realized period drama, maybe the best movie ever about slavery
@AskDebruge: Not 1 wrong note in #12YearsASlave ensemble; Chiwetel Ejiofor and newcomer Lupita Nyong’o are all but assured Oscar noms
@wadeiscompton “12 Years a Slave” just solidified its position in the Oscar race with a standing Ovation out of Telluride.
@ChrisWillman “12 Years a Slave” stars Brad Pitt, Chiwetel Ejiofor do a Q&A at #TFF40 just now. Ejiofor: likely best actor winner.
