    Watch: 5-Minute Featurette With New Footage For Telluride Surprise & TIFF Anticipated '12 Years A Slave'

    As Steve McQueen has displayed across three movies, he's not shy of hard-hitting subject matter. The titular hunger strike of "Hunger" put him on the map, with his followup, the sex-addition drama "Shame" further solidifying the filmmaker's knack for tackling deep drama with an unerring eye for visu...

    I was happy to give MovieCityNews webmaster David Poland my top 15 picks for the Best Picture Field. I didn't have to rank them, and while I haven't seen most of them, I could certainly take a stab at where the For Your Consideration ads are likely to go.
