    "We're not bad people. We just come from a bad place."

    I've been wanting to see this for a long time but unfortunately due to it's rating, they don't have it to rent or buy at any store near me. Thankfully, I recently started using Video on Demand.

    Michael Fassbender plays a New York executive who lives alone in a nice apartment and is constantly ignoring calls from his sister Carey Mulligan. Oh, and he's also a major sex addict.…

    A very slow burn, but harrowing. Great performances by both actors. The use of several long, contemplative, unbroken takes will grate some viewers but I found it highlights the lonely, troubled nature of the character.

    We're not bad people. We just come from a bad place.

    There comes a point in Shame when Sissy sings "New York, New York". McQueen lingers on Sissy so long that she seems to dissolve into the shimmering background and all that remains is a pair of undulating ruby red lips. When the camera finally does cut back to Brandon, he wipes away a stray tear racing down his cheek.

    Fassbender and McQueen had kept me at such a distance…

    Definitely one to watch with your young children if you want to answer a lot of questions when it's over.

    I love Michael Fassbender, and I absolutely love emotional, dialogue heavy one takes. Two of the reasons I adored this movie!

    What is shame to you? Is it getting caught with your pants down, or maybe getting caught with porn on your computer? To Brandon (the film’s protagonist) shame is intimacy, it's sharing a moment of genuine passion and emotion with someone who he actually cares about.

    Brandon is a man addicted to sex, it’s the one thing in his life that he doesn’t have control over. He jerks off, talks to online sex workers, and fucks countless hookers, and…

    Really a sad story about addiction, could as easily been about drugs. Really liked the New York look and sound. Fassbender was excellent.

    Favourite scene was the date in the restaurant. I really like conversational scenes/movies (See the "Before..." series)
