Re: “Of Human Bondage: How The Retrieval Succeeds Where 12 Years a Slave Failed

You might call it manipulation, but slavery in the u.s. was based on a manipulation. First of all, let's talk about the fact that 12 years isn't fiction and the director use the veracity of the story to create something approaching veritas. You might feel manipulated but the present, and thus your critique, is based on the false hope that actually it can't be true that The Atlantic Slave trade was one of the worst things that ever existed in human history and it was perpetrated by your ancestors. Yes, complexity always defines our present, but that present is undoubtably shaped by the past. It runs in your blood.
