    Steve McQueen's follow-up to his critically acclaimed directional debut is another powerfully compelling, unflinchingly graphic & downright disturbing example of arthouse cinema focusing on the devastating effects of addiction that presents the director in prime form, is crafted with precision care & meticulous attention to detail, and benefits greatly from another excellent performance from Michael Fassbender.

    Set in New York City, Shame follows the life of Brandon; a 30-something man who's a sex addict. While his carefully cultivated private life does allow…

    L'ambientació i l'aïllament del protagonista ho són tot. No parla de l'addicció al sexe més què com a excusa per retratar l'alienació de l'individu.

    Steve McQueen just hopped into my favorite directors and hes only made 3 films.

    Shame is quite the movie, following Brandon, played by Fassbender, and his sister Sissy, played by Carey Mulligan. Brandon is a sex addict, something that me, and probably quite a few other people thought was a joke before watching this movie, but Shame portrays sex addiction as just as big as a problem as any addiction.

    Fassbender is masterful as always, giving one of the best…

    I have to stop watching movies directed by Steve McQueen. Or at least ones written by him. I gain so, so little from his films. I don't even think Fassbender is exceptional in them, largely because the material is weak.

    The premise is great, and Fassbender doesn't fail anything here. Carey Mulligan elevates it, as does that idiot waiter. But loads of this movie I just found so, so, so boring.

    I feel like I've been giving out too many high scores lately but I've also been watching a fuckton of amazing movies lately so I guess I can justify it that way. This is one of those amazing movies.

    ¿Sería capaz de verla otra vez? No creo. ¿Será posible recordarla para siempre? Absolutamente.

    McQueen provoca e irradia sensaciones ambiguas y Fassbender junto a Mulligan son tan creíbles que hasta dan miedo. Los amplios ventanales de Nueva York nunca fueron tan excitantes como en esta aventura llena de morbo y desenfreno.

    There's a lot of willy in this one. Feckin great I tells ya.

    There's a hell of a lot of clever sexual and interpretive imagery and themes in this film, which is going to cause me to lump it in that pretentious list of labelling it an "experience" not a "film", but one that's still held together by a (more or less) consistent story.

    It's a much, much, much, much, better, less pretentious, clever-er…

    Great acting by Michael Fassbender in this dark tale about sex and family, with great directing by Steve McQueen.
