From director Steve McQueen, Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us. You see, that’s the usual mistake we have with the official descriptions.
I mean, do I really want to see an examination of the nature of need? No, I don’t! Boriiiiiiing! But I’ll give them a try. First of all, cast is no bad, second – I’m interested to see McQueen portrait of sexual addiction. Just give me the “s” word, and I’m all ears!
As you already guess, time for another first clip thing. Just for a record, when you press play button, first you have a little chat from the Venice press conference, and then, after two minutes or something you have Michael Fassbender looking good as a train sex maniac.
He’s actually Brandon, a 30-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, Brandon’s world spirals out of control.
Shame has already premiered at the Venice Film Festival and Telluride and its next stop is the Toronto International Film Festival.
And in the rest of this report, you’ll have a chance to watch some fresh photos from the movie which also stars Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale and Nicole Beharie.
I’m not actually fascinated with the way Mulligan looks in this one but what the hell, I have the right to remain silent, so I’ll use it right now. Enjoy!
