Director Steve McQueen, whose poetic visual style helped secure a best picture Oscar for "12 Years a Slave", brings a sensibility to his films even when tackling harrowing subjects.McQueen later explained that the film was more an exploration of sexuality and masculinity than of race.McQueen's raw feature focused on the slow death of Sands, played by Irish-German actor Michael Fassbender, who has appeared in all three of his feature-length films.McQueen said he was hooked from the moment he had "12 Years a Slave" in his hand.McQueen is reportedly working on a television series following a west London black community from the 1960s to the present day.His next film, announced last month, will be "Widows", a heist thriller starring Viola Davis for which McQueen is preparing the screenplay along with "Gone Girl" writer Gillian Flynn.
