Very adult themes and definitely not for everyone. Excellent acting, direction and script. The nonverbal communication in this film is heavy, exquisite and on point. Michael Fassbender is wonderful and so is Carey Mulligan as per usual. It is so sad. I barely have words for it. Everything is urgent and precarious all the time. The characters make you wonder what their back story is, what drives them, what propels them in to shameful acts and acute sadness. It is deeply saddening that there are people that we know and love that have to endure this level of pain and find no solace in the ones who love them. I would say that it is worth a watch. This movie examines very adult themes and is not for everyone. It is very RAW and honest in its voyeuristic approach having us share in the shame by our limited point of view. Again excellent direction. The dynamic between siblings is tenuous and a little disturbing to say the least. Definitely worth at least one watch if you are up for it and very open-minded.

Convincing masterpiece. You can feel the shame. Fassbender was awesome. Agree, lifestyle like in American Psycho. But in shame he is destroying his mind and his body step by step. The german protagonist will have a great future in Hollywood. OK. He already appeared in big flicks.

This movie was pretty raw, in that it barely bothered with dialog or plot, but went straight for emotions and desires. It is well done on a technical level (some great shots there), and the acting by the always adorable Carey Mulligan and especially by Michael Fassbender were absolutely amazing. I'm not sure if I will watch it again, but I will definitely check out McQueens other work.

Zag2me - you are spot on. I was thinking exactly the same regarding your comparison with American Psycho. Of course Shame has a completely different story and is the better film. The score is amazing. First see Michael Fassbender in Fish Tank and he has come on leaps and bounds...i will watch his career closely from now on.

This is a second feature film from Director Steve McQueen, and Oh my god, does this guy have a good track record. This film is basically an amazing character study of a man played by Michael Fassbender, who is addicted to lust, but won't let himself experience a meaningful relationship. Drama un More

[7.1/10] I really don’t know what to make of *Shame*. At times it is a meditative look at two people processing unspecified trauma. At others, it’s a softcore porn movie with orchestral music and the standard indie color grading. Sometimes it’s a slow-spun but captivating glimpse of a man tryi More

Shame is nothing short of a masterpiece: every shot tells a story.

SYNOPSIS: (from Google)
Successful and handsome New Yorker Brandon (Michael Fassbender) seems to live an ordinary life, but he hides a terrible secret behind his mask of normalcy: Brandon is a sex addict. His constant need for gr More

Has a good reputation among critics and film-buffs, but I thought this was duller than dullsville on a dull tuesday.

Fassbender has got to be one of the most overrated actors in recent times. He's got a distinctive look and his eyes pierces through the screen I'll give him that. And a well-sized More
