12 YEARS A SLAVE MOST GUILT-INDUCING FILM?



   Having scooped the best picture awards at the Golden Globes, BAFTAs and various critics’ circles, the gritty, graphically violent---and for me, unwatchable---12 Years A Slave is the odds-odd favourite to win the Oscar, too.    

   But I like to think it will also win other, tongue-in-cheek awards it is eligible for as suggested by the satirical magazine Private Eye:

1.   Most worthy film
2.   Most guilt-inducing film to a white middle-class audience
3.   Hardest film to say you found it a bit dull, to be honest
4.   Best film to bring up at a dinner party if you want people to leave
5.   Film most in need of a bit of light relief
