Shame ★★★½

Interested in feeling uncomfortable and queasy?

Interested in wondering (genuinely) how Michael Fassbender could possibly not be inside some of the women in this film?

Interested in seeing one of the strangest brother-sister relationships ever conceived?

Then this is the movie for you.

Jokes aside, Michael Fassbender is incredible and this movie is extremely effective at accomplishing its goal, which is not to make you feel happy in any way.

This movie affected me on a discomfort level more than anything since I saw Black Swan for the first time. Very well done.
