I guess it's the point of the movie that I'm more excited by the camera work than the sex scenes.
"Shame" is a meditation on loneliness and the inability to connect with anyone that reminded me of "Lost in Translation". To me the movie read less like a story about sex addiction than a story about a man who doesn't have anything meaningful in his life- no friends, no interests, just work that he doesn't seem to care much for…
Great character study of a sex addict. I would put this movie on par with Blue Valentine as a movie that really made me feel for the characters in it and the situation they are going through. It's a Shame that this movie really cam and went so fast without the vast majority of people knowing about it. Fastbender continues to impress me and is another one of the best actors working today.
A 12 év rabszolgaság egy korábbi filmje.
Ezt főleg arra értem, hogy Fassbender pénisze 5 perc alatt vagy hatszor fut át a képernyőn.
Ami ugye nem megszokott.
Mert néhol, a pucérság, az intimitás, a szexualitás ugye tabu.
Nekem tetszett ez a fajta prokováció.
És nem kell rosszra gondolni.
A kivitelezés tetszett.
És nem Fassbender pénisze.
Nagyon sok a hosszú képsor, jelenet.
Ami nagyon sok feszültséget, rejtelmet és örvényt tartalmaz.
Nagyon szerettem a rendezést.
Mindenképpen érdemes megnézni.
Nagyon jó film.
Hangulat kell hozzá.
És pofátlanul őszinte.
I've now seen all three films from director Steve Mcqueen and I respect the fact that he makes films that purposely are not suppose to entertain us or even make us feel comfortable. Some would think that a film is suppose to entertain but when someone is this daring and takes such dark and difficult subject matter and displays it in a realistic and intense fashion I can only watch in awe. Michael Fassbender as Brandon was beyond convincing as…
After being shellshocked and moved profoundly by 12 Years A Slave, it was only natural to backtrack and watch Steve McQueen's previous collaboration with Michael Fassbender, Shame. While it also shows the work of a very talented director, I found it a rather joyless experience that hammers the sadness home a little too much.
Brandon is a decently wealthy and good looking man in his prime. He has a nice apartment, a job that he enjoys and a sister trying…
Amazing and audacious.
There's something electric about Shame. Every scene is filled with palpable emotion, making it all the more real. The story concerns Brandon, a sex addict with a strict routine that hides his vice particularly well. Brandon's privacy is put in jeopardy when his sister, Sissy, comes to New York for an indefinite stay at his apartment. What ensues is a study in how people deal with the situations life throws at them. Although it's never explicitly stated (but very much…
The private life of a successful, sex addict (Fassbender) is disrupted by the arrival of his sister (Mulligan). The R Rated Steve McQueen film is raw, with a heavy use of sex and a great pair of actors.
"Shame" is about commitment issues, sexual preferences and solitude.
It's not a bad film to watch, but it's actually for a limited group of people!
"These little town blues, are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York...New York."
- New York, New York, John Kander and Fred Ebb
In what is a rarity on film, where the aim these days seems to be to pack in as much as possible, the first ten minutes of Shame are nearly silent, beginning with the…
Inherently more interested in production design than storyline, which tends to raise more questions than it answers. (Why the extended New York, New York take? The extended running scene? Etc.)
