Shame is such an incrediably sad film. Brandon/Sissy are such lonely emotionally scared miserable pathetic characters. It's a great film. I did get the we committed incest at least twice vibe while watching. I have no doubt that was left open ended for us to judge. I will say it's sad that Michael Fassbender didn't get an Oscar nom. Had he been a woman playing a woman with sex addicton, probably would of won an Oscar. I mean Halle Berry won one for Christ's sake.
