Editorial Reviews

"Driven by a brilliant and ferocious performance by Michael Fassbender," (Hollywood Reporter) Shame tells the riveting story of Brandon; a handsome New York businessman with a dark and destructive secret. His solitary existence is shaken by the unexpected arrival of his sister Sissy (Carey Mulligan, An Education), another damaged soul who brings memories of a painful shared past. Graphic, highly provocative and undeniably powerful, "Shame is the most devastating and thought-provoking cinematic experiences of the entire year." (Richard Roeper).

Format:Blu-ray
While most mainstream critics have praised the daring work of leads Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, the reception to co-writer/director Steve McQueen's "Shame" has been somewhat mixed. It's really no surprise as this gritty and unpleasant film seems designed to polarize its audience. A lot of attention has been focused on the film's nudity and sexual content, and I'm pleased to see that the dreaded NC-17 rating hasn't discouraged year-end accolades from being awarded to its stars. While I'm not sure that "Shame" is as fraught with meaning as some of its more ardent supporters would have you believe, I do think that it is a dizzyingly unique film. As a character study, and a fascinating one at that, the screenplay actually tells you very little about the central pair of disturbed siblings. And yet, as the film progressed, my mind filled in all the blanks. You are invited to watch their most intimate and destructive behavior while only given clues as to the psychological origins that set them on these paths. The fact that the movie doesn't spell things out is perhaps my favorite thing about it and what sets it apart.

Fassbender plays a successful New York professional that wallows in random sexual encounters. While he is never labeled an addict, per se, his behavior is certainly compulsive and seems to invade and control every aspect of his day. He seems to relish the life, except in moments of introspection, but his ability to connect with people on a meaningless physical level has superceded any real emotional relationships. When his troubled sister (Mulligan) stays with him, it seems to stir up a lot of conflicting feelings. The two do a strange and compelling dance of dysfunction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic filmmaking that's still hard to recommend. January 23, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
WARNING: While not explicit, per se...this review does touch on some subject matter some folks might simply not want to read about. I don't mean to offend anyone, but there's no way to review the movie otherwise, in my opinion.

SHAME has been called the "movie about the sex addict" and this is a rather unfair over-simplification. It also implies that there might be lots of juicy sex scenes, especially given its NC-17 rating. If THIS is what you're expecting, you are in for a disappointment.

Director Steve McQueen's film is a character study of one very specific sex addict, Brandon (Michael Fassbender). And I'm not even sure if Brandon is a sex addict or something different. He is certainly a man driven to spending virtually all his spare time (and much of his time at work) viewing porn and pleasuring himself. He spends lots of money on prostitutes. He is also attractive enough to draw yearning from women looking for a good time and a quickie in an alley (literally at one point). But NONE of these activities give him any pleasure whatsoever. In fact, he seems to suffer a psychic pain at his despair in not truly drawing any pleasure from his compulsions. I read one review in which the viewer describes him as a "monster." I felt much the opposite...he is a creature to be pitied. Having said that, I felt pity mostly because we saw everything from Brandon's perspective. Not much attention is paid to the damage he may be causing others (with one key exception, which I'll discuss below)...therefore, we see HIS torment and HIS unhappiness and HIS damage. It's hard not to feel sorry for him, even as we're repulsed by his activities. This is a smart guy who knows better...but his self-knowledge only makes him hate himself more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Shame December 26, 2011
Directed by Steve McQueen, "Shame" explores sexual addiction, alienation, and loneliness in contemporary New York City. With its many sex scenes, the film manages to be unerotic. The movie and its actors have received numerous accolades. The acting is convincing and the scenes of city life well drawn. Many viewers will find this film disturbing.

The film stars Michael Fassbender as a successful 30ish professional named Brandon who cannot control his sexual appetites or channel his sexuality into a relationship. Brandon is both a predator and a victim. He is apparently able to pick up attractive similarly lonely women on the spot for short encounters. Brandon also uses the services of prostitutes. When he is home alone, he watches pornography and camgirls on his computer. He gets confronted with a wide range of pornographic material on his office computer. He is unable to function in an attempted relationship with a coworker, Marianne, (Nichole Beharie) which involves attempted emotion beyond sex. Fassbender plays this role well in his lines, dress, gestures, and facial expressions. He has a sense of decency and is at war with himself.

The other primary character in "Shame" is Brandon's younger sister Sissie played by Carrie Mulligan. Sissie has suicidal tendencies and is emotionally needy. She moves in with Brandon early in the film and the emotional tension mounts between the siblings as the movie progresses. Each sees the serious, devastating issues in the life of the other. Brandon's sexual addition and his relationship with Sissie become intertwined and form the two themes of this movie.

The movie makes have use of atmosphere to establish the sordid character of Brandon's mind.

This movie had the potential to be something much greater. I don't feel that we were able to really get to know the lead character enough to have any empathy for him. Read more

Yes! I had literally the exact same problem. I have a Mac and followed the intstructions exactly but it still wouldn't work. I have a feeling it's not just us. I haven't had a chance to contact anyone about it yet. I was hoping someone on here had a solution.
