A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

  • Jun 10, 2012
Following up his intensely realistic drama “Hunger”, director Steve McQueen follows it up with a second collaboration with actor Michael Fassbender called “Shame”.

McQueen handles this film’s concept quite well and he seemed to have done his homework on his premise. Fassbender makes a very convincing, bold and daring portrayal of an office guy named Brandon, struggling with his sex addiction. Carey Mulligan is just as good lending him support playing his character’s sister, Sissy.

The film is an effective study of the disorder of sex addiction. How it affects one’s own life and how it can even affect others. The direction wasn’t afraid to go into the dark corners of this disorder as well as other areas that can make it even worst.

This is a well directed film that astounds with its performances as well as the depths of its script. “Shame” is something to see. Just make sure the kids are in asleep or not at home. It has earned its NC-17 rating.

I'm looking forward to your full critique. I've been intending to see this one but haven't been eager because although it sounds worthwhile, it's got to be far from pleasant.

Courageous, Truthful and Mesmerizing Portrayal of Sex Addiction
Addiction has its many shapes and forms. I’ve always believed that no one wants to be an addict to hurt himself or to ruin his life--I believe that one becomes an addict for the promise of becoming better. Stronger. Smarter. Suaver. Cooler. Richer. Braver. The promise is always fulfilling but that promise is always a lie. It is a lesson that a lot of people have learned or are learning, if you never had to learn this agonizing human lesson then you are fortunate.      So, …

'Shame' 'Two Jews On Film' Are Addicted To 'Steve McQueen's' Raw Voyage Into Sexual Addiction
         A goodlooking man in his thirties sits on a New York City subway starring intensely at a married woman seated across from him.  It's obvious to the viewer that he's hitting on her and it's just as obvious, that's she's enjoying it.      The man is Brandon (Michael Fassbender) and he is a sex addict.  Thanks to Steve McQueen's brilliant direction, we get to be a voyeur into Brandon's …

Ain't No Shame
  SHAME Written and Directed by Steve McQueen Starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan   Brandon: Some people fuck up all the time.   Steve McQueen’s sophomore film, SHAME, begins with his returning star, Michael Fassbender, lying in bed, staring at the ceiling or into some far off space. He doesn’t move; he just lies there half covered by the blankets for some time. Something in his eyes suggests he can’t move just yet. He is trapped in those precious …

Star Rating:         Brandon (Michael Fassbender) is an addict. His drug is not heroin, cocaine, meth, or alcohol, but sex. Although he can function in social scenarios, he’s hindered by uncontrollable urges, and his only fix is to have an orgasm. He needs this many times a day just to get back up to normal. Several shots of his face throughout the film make it clear that the sensation has long since stopped giving him pleasure. One near the end, for example, …
