    Michael Fassbender spielt einen Sex-süchtigenden Typen, der sich keiner langen Beziehung verschreiben kann und dessen Leben praktisch nur von der Lust geprägt wird, ohne dass er sich dabei groß um andere scheren würde. Dementsprechend viel nackte Haut war auch zu sehen, aber es wirkte wegen des Themas jetzt nicht unbedingt pornographisch oder gar erotisch. Alles in einem war es eine ziemlich deprimierende Charakterstudie, gut von Fassbender und seiner "Schwester" gespielt und definitiv kein Film, den man sich anschauen sollte, wenn…

    There was a dark mood throughout the film with very little dialogue and beautiful cinematography. Fassbender and Mulligan both give an amazing performance and it gives a chilling depiction of addiction. At times hard to watch and probably not a film I would chose to watch again.

    My mum always says that my brother looks like Michael Fassbender.
    I hope that those observations are not based on this film.

    This stuff was hard to watch, but Fassbender killed it. So dark.

    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.
