    Shame, 2011 – Steve McQueen

    Shame is one of my all-time favorite films; it is an achievement in acting, directing, and story telling, and I do not feel I am capable of capturing in words how I feel about the film almost to the point that I don’t even want to write about the film. It is frustrating, but the attempt at putting my feelings about Shame into words can only improve the strength of those feelings. Though it will…

    Michael Fassbender is a high-powered business man™, who, during the day, is charming, witty and the nearest thing you can get to a metrosexual alphamale. Ever willing to buy the next round, he has numerous friends and smiles in that way some people called handsome, but the realistic know is actually a smug git.

    By night, he holds onto an unquenchable desire that leads him to traverse some of the darker areas of New York City and his very soul.…

    An excellent portrait of addiction and the suffering that surrounds it. In this case, an addiction to sex. Fassbender is outstanding as Brandon. His life is nothing but sex, porn and misery. Brandon's life is hell, as is that of his sister, Sissy, portrayed by Carey Mulligan in another excellent performance. Her life seems to be a list of failures and bad choices. The film hints that they shared a terrible trauma as children but never explains anything more. She…

    Cold and clinical, Shame trades more in the artful observation of a man controlled by his sexual impulses than the invasive understanding of the condition. It's quite tame for a long time, leading the message unclear. When things escalate, they do so quickly, but with so much ambiguity in the first 2/3rds, it weakens the impact that this film is demanding.

    Fassbender's performance manages to be intriguing despite his character having very few lines. He's sympathetic and frightening by turns, and the downward spiral that Brandon takes is conveyed perfectly. McQueen's directing is harsh but beautiful, not at all shying away from scenes that can be hard to watch. Not for the faint of heart.

    La música, las imágenes, la espectacular interpretación de Fassbender, la soberbia dirección de McQueen, todos estos elementos nos introducen en el mundo de Brandon desde la óptica más desoladora posible. Hasta la famosísima canción de "New York, New York", versión de Carey Mulligan, está cargada de desasosiego.

    La adicción al sexo se trata como lo que realmente es: una enfermedad mental. Un drama cargado de pesimismo donde hasta los pocos rayos de esperanza son rápidamente vapuleados. En "Shame" encontramos las escenas de sexo más tristes y menos eróticas que jamás se han rodado.

    Michael Fassbender's role was really good in this movie. It's nice to see movies from time to time that depicts mental illness
