    Synopsis


    Shame
    An outwardly ordinary man must come to terms with his inner compulsions in this powerful drama from filmmaker Steve McQueen. Brandon (Michael Fassbender) is a successful businessman in his early thirties who lives in New York. To most around him, Brandon seems cool and introverted, but inside he is wrestling with a powerful sexual appetite; he's obsessed with pornography and prefers short-term relationships with women that allow him to keep the world at arm's length. The grim routine of Brandon's life is upended when his sister Sissy (Carey Mulligan) stops by for an extended visit without prior notice. While Brandon is reserved, Sissy is an outgoing and flashy musician, and she doesn't seem to care about her brother's need for privacy. When Sissy forces Brandon to look closely at his life, he comes to understand the circumstances that made him the man he is today as his veneer of calm begins to crack. Shame won the Firpresci Award (presented by the International Federation of Film Critics) at the 2011 Venice Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Before winning his Oscar for the quintessential slave drama, "12 Years A Slave," Steve McQueen's "Shame" is an outstanding art film revolving around a businessman (Michael Fassbender) succumbing to a rare addiction, but tackles his personal life as his estranged sister (Carey Mulligan) moves into his home, causing emotional dismay to Fassbender's character. Anyone who is a fan of art films, or movies, in general, will find much to admire, given the subject matter. The movie is NC-17 considering there are graphic scenes including one which will make you feel squeamish so you can handle it. As for the BluRay itself, the picture and sound quality is stellar and does not disappoint as you'll find the blue hues in the cinematography illuminating in some scenes. Like most combo packs, this does have a DVD copy and digital copy, but you'll be somewhat irritated that the redemption code is valid for Android video apps. No iTunes nor Ultraviolet Digital Copy! Again, to anyone who admired McQueen's works or motion pictures will find much to enjoy in "Shame" and you'll get your money's worth if you're shopping for movies $10 & under.

      I enjoyed the movie - arguably a bit slow at times, but great directing and an amazing performance by Michael Fassbender pulled it through. As for the product, I was shocked and amazed to find the Blu-ray/Digital/DVD three-pack sitting in one of the budget bins at my local BB. Picked it up without hesitation, and it as worth every penny. I've only watched the Blu-ray so far, but the quality was superb, and the included special features make this a good buy; especially at this price. Recommended.

      Incredible! But Not For Everyone

      As I stated in the title of this review, SHAME is an incredible film! Now with that being said, it is absolutely not for everyone. Yes, it is NC-17 and the rating is very well-deserved based upon very explicit content. But what do you expect seeing as the film is about a man struggling with a rough addiction. The performances are raw, emotional, and oscar-worthy at that. If you're into low-key indie films that have something to say, watch this movie (just not around your kids)!

      There are very few movies that deals with the human condition, but this one speaks for all the ones that missed the mark. I was totally mesmerized by the intensity and believability of Michael Fassbender's character. The torment he portrayed was beyond my comprehension of addiction. Cary Mulligen was the absolute best choice to portray his needy, lost sister. A MUST see...

      Cold as ice...but gripping.

      Notoriety regarding Fassbender's much noted nudity (is it really THAT big a deal?? can't disguise the fact that this is just another walk on the Urban wild side with soulless office drones behaving badly...(I was stunned by how closely this echoed the even worse 2006 debacle "Deception" in tone). Some very good acting (though Fassbender overdoes his chilling drone a wee bit... All in all worth seeing...but do not expect anything shocking or original from the script.

      This movie is an honest portrait of a man struggling with s*x addiction. He seemingly has it all, job, friends, potential love interests .... but his addictions/cravings are out of control. This is not a trashy movie, but one that deals with the pain and heartache this man goes through in coming to terms with his problem........... a very well written and acted drama if you can handle or like serious adult themes like this. Recommended with that caveat.

      Shameless is a bold, raw film that pushes the boundaries of the human experience. Not for the faint of heart and a film only for a mature adult audience. Michael Fassbender is excellent in his stark, no holds barred performance and Carey Mulligan is heart wrenching as his troubled sister. Her bar room performance of New York, New York will touch you as it reveals the pain in her soul. A movie sure to invite debate and not to be missed.

      This is the kind of subtly disturbing movie you really need to watch several times, as there are bound to be details you miss the first time...and second, and...The acting was amazing, but I wouldn't expect anything less from Fassbender. This is not action packed, and it does leave you with a lot of questions, but that's the point. This is a segment of a life, not a complete story from beginning to happy ending. I loved it.
