2013 Online Film Critics Society Awards
16 December 2013 1:44 PM, PST
Today, the Online Film Critics Society announced their annual awards as chosen by the group’s membership. One of those members includes Mike Everleth, the Executive Editor of the Underground Film Journal.
The big winner this year was Steve McQueen’s acclaimed film 12 Years a Slave, which took five of the awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay.
On the semi-underground front, the Best Documentary award went to Joshua Oppenheimer’s controversial documentary The Act of Killing, about a former Indonesian death squad leader asked to act out his “glory days.” Seen by, but not official reviewed by the Journal, The Act of Killing is a horrific and emotionally draining cinematic experience that is a must-see film. »
