Honestly, I only saw this movie because I am a big fan of Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan. This film surprised me a lot, the story is a bit predictable and the movie ends leaving some important questions, but with a great cast and a very touching relationship between the brothers, Shame is good, very good.
I originally saw Shame in the cinema, several years ago, and remember it as being well made and powerfully acted, although at times I found it quite puzzling. I've been intending to see it again for some while, and watching Fassbender's brilliant portrayal of Steve Jobs recently made me more determined.
So I aquired a DVD copy [ by chance the very next day in a charity shop! ] and would recommend that anyone thinking of seeing it this way…
Everyone talks about Inception's open-ended ending...BUT WHAT ABOUT SHAME?! DOES HE GET UP!? DOES HE GET OFF THE TRAIN!? TELL ME!
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The film is - plain and simple - about a sex addict. The addict is our main character, the addict is portrayed by Michael Fassbender and the addict's name is Brandon. Brandon is a successful, New York City executive, who lives alone in a trendy NYC apartment and who gets around with the ladies, thanks to his good looks and prowess in the sheets. Brandon isn't above paying a prostitute for sex and in fact, one might argue that he…
Michael Fassbender´s little mickey is the least of the film´s problems!
mc queen's cinematography nails it
- I like that Stevie Mcqueen allowed the shots to linger for a bit. I'd rather not have directors cutting too much, but letting the movie breath is an art in itself.
- Good acting. And, by that, I mean good Fassbender.
- Good directing with lots of undertones and subtext.
- There are better movies out there about sex addiction.
- Weak screenplay (not as bad as a porno, but still weak), with two characters that are simply each other's opposite.
- No after-credits scene where Fassbender checks his results for STDs.
Filme do britânico Steve McQueen, escolhe a cidade de Nova York, símbolo máximo do mundo cosmopolita do século XXI, para a realização do mesmo.
Shame é um filme que busca provocar no público uma reflexão mais ampla do que a mera discussão em torno de como o sexo é percebido moral e socialmente no nosso tempo. Justamente por isso, o filme nega-se a desvendar o passado potencialmente traumático dos dois personagens centrais e teorizar sobre seus efeitos no presente deles.…
The heartbreaking story of an attractive, successful man with a massive penis who can't stop shagging beautiful women.
While the whole concept of a film focusing on the sex addiction of a well-groomed businessman could fall into camp territory, it's in the supreme ambiguity that Steve McQueen bathes his film in that gives "Shame" its ticket straight out of unintentional hilarity. Not to say that "Shame" isn't laced with its own humor of a vulgar variety; there are moments the film finds itself so uncomfortable with its own material that it seems to find itself laughing on the…
Very David Fincherisk film, the Fass is a beast.
