Shame ★★★★½

going into this I didn't really know what it was about I just assumed it was about infidelity, but instead I found myself deeply intrigued by this unique and profound portrayal of addiction.

I think Michael Fassbender truly ties the film together and almost every element of filmmaking works through his performance. had it been anyone else trying to pull this off I'm not sure if it would have left the same impact on me. I could really go on and on about this, but I was so immersed with his character that I actually felt so sorry for this man (sorry to this man). those long shots really got me in my feelings
