    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…

    - 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…

    Boring, obnoxious, slow as fuck. 50% of this movie is just scenes of Michael Fassbender running around New York City but I mean if thats what you like, thats what you like.

    Not so much about sex-addiction then about a man whose openness conflicts with the prudishness of society. McQueen's direction may be too harsh on its audience, but it gives us the opportunity to assess these subjects in a pure rational way. A rare quality, leading to some interesting conclusions. Observe how most characters are at least as self-obsessed as the protagonist, with lesser morality. Yet, society doesn't seem to hate them.
