# 1 Twelve Years a Slave

Twelve Years a Slave is about a Free African American man that has his freedom stripped from him unjustly. He was promised a job as a musician. He was celebrated and drugged, thrown into captivity and sold into slavery... oh thats all you get. I thought the movie was the one of the best, it demonstrated how far a man will go to have his life and family back. Northup was a man of patience and will.

# 4 Bridges of Spies

Rudolf Abel. James Donovan. Two man on missions, one a spy...one a Lawyer...a Soviet and an American trade. This is a movie to be remembered it displayed the unjust practices on the other side of the world. It showed us that all men can be who they wanna be and that we aren't told the truth until its said and done. Democracy.@_@
