Mrs. Cate wants to go see 12 Years a Slave. No thanks (although she certainly doesn’t need my permission). I won’t see that movie, for the same reason I didn’t go see The Passion of the Christ several years back. I don’t need to feed my brain with huge, color, 4K-digital depictions of bloody, savage brutality to know that it happened. Besides that, it’s probably not as good a movie as the Oscar-baited critics make it out to be.
