12 YEARS A SLAVE
December 22, 2014  | By David Bianculli

Cinemax, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

I know. This powerful but grim 2013 drama, about a free northern black man’s descent into slavery in the antebellum southern states, isn’t exactly warm and fuzzy holiday fare. But it’s the best movie shown tonight anywhere on TV, so it deserves mention. Chiwetel Ejiofor stars.
