My classmate at Bard who launched a career as a film critic in 1967 at 
the very time I was launching mine as a Trotskyist (sigh) has very much 
the same take as me on all the "great" movies getting awards, 
particularly this one:

12 Years a Slave –- an arthouse exploitation gift to masochistic guilty 
liberals hungry for history lessons, some of whom consider any treatment 
of American slavery by a black filmmaker to be an unprecedented event, 
thus overlooking Charles Burnett’s far superior Nightjohn.
