...who kept waiting for Django to show up and kill all those evil crackers in 12 Years A Slave, right?

Seriously though, I don't think anything comes close to this as the best film of 2013. The screenplay is amazing. Chiwetel Ejiofor and Fassbender are just incredible. I watched Gravity and this back to back and learned the true difference between the maudlin simulacrum of human sadness and the true depths of anguish.
