    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Steve McQueen has an excellent way of directing. When Fassbender jogs and how the camera moves and the heated argument between two characters and the placement of the camera is interesting. I think, if he had made three more films, he might potentially be my favorite director.

    What is Shame about?

    Shame examines the nature of need, the way we live our lives and the experiences that shape us. It is so powerful and moving and the music puts everything…

    Shame, the second film by artist-turned-film director Steve McQueen, is nominally about sex addiction. Brandon (Michael Fassbender) is a New York executive of some description – I couldn’t work out what he did for a living, who he did for a living, yes, but not what – who has an eye for the ladies. If he cannot seduce woman on the subway, he consorts with a prostitute. If prostitutes are unavailable, he logs on for an X-rated web chat. If…

    Relentlessly desolate. One of the most powerful films I've ever seen. Deals with sex addiction in one of the most real and dark ways possible. I have never seen so many lonely characters. Fassbender is unreal.

    For such a renown director, stacked cast, and heavy subject matter I was simply left wanting more exploration. Although, if the point was to make the audience as numb and apathetic as Fassbender... it worked.

    Where's the line between porn and art? It's not as if this is the most explicit movie ever made but id still like to know where that line is. Shame can't be called be porn but it can't be called art either, in the opening 10 minutes we practically study Michael Fassbender's penis. When we are introduced to Carey Mulligan's character, she is naked in the shower as her brother walks in, the scene seemed completely unnecessary not to mention…

    Fassbender y Mulligan: Brutales
