    While I thought this was a good film with a provocative story that you don't normally see on film, I can't help but feel like something was missing from Shame.

    All the performances are good, the cinematography great and the subject matter challenging as well as thought-provoking, the best way to describe this film is more of an art installation than a narrative piece, although that in itself is also good.

    My issue primarily comes from the method in which…

    Shame is a terminally brooding film, a film that simultaneously manages to do very little in terms of plot but feel totally present.

    Fassbender plays a man who has a very good life on paper; he's so handsome he barely has to try with women, and when he does he's incredibly smooth. He lives in New York, gets payed well and he's totally independent. He's quite the charming guy.

    But in reality, he's fucking miserable, a massive hypocrite and completely…

    An arthouse movie that uses the promise of a naked Michael Fassbender to lure the fangirls/-boys into a flick with a Freudian plot, patient camera and great acting.

    I completely forgot that I've already seen this movie which tells you everything about my impressions. Not exactly my cup of tea. Carey Mulligan is wonderful, Fassbender's performance is great, but that's all I like. I'm indifferent to everything else.

    The Hook: Montage of Brandon's strange sex life (perhaps establishing his character flaw) only to be broken up by the first bit of dialogue "You disgust me." (Although this was in the context of a conversation that didn't apply to the previous shots, it's juxtaposition to that material is dope) (00:03:00)
    The Catalyst: When Sissy moves into her brothers apartment. (00:22:00)
    The Big Event: When Sissy has sex with her brother's friend Dave. (00:43:00)
    The midpoint: when Sissy catches Brandon…

    The first time I saw this I remember feeling distinctly disappointed, but the second time it really got me in the feels (probably inappropriate phrasing for a film of this subject matter, but whatever). I still maintain that it goes off the deep end (unnecessarily) in the last third, and the soundtrack is Too Much - but all in all its a really insightful study of human intimacy, the gravity of need and the often inescapable bond of family. And so - things get messy. Sometimes we don't want what we need and we don't need what we want.

    Fassbender's acting and McQueen's visuals are a joy in a movie devoid of happiness.

    Strong movie.
    Looked more like a porno, but it was actually good.
    Important message.
