Shame (2011)

Directed by: Steve McQueen
Country: UK

Plot: Brandon is living in New York and reveals himself unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, his world spirals out of control.
Quick comment: After “hunger”, “shame” is the confirmation of a compelling director. A study of a sex-addicted character amazingly portrayed by Michael Fassbender. A curious aspect here to notice is that many questions will be raised about the motives and the past of characters but none of them will be answered. It simply shows us in a raw way how the things are, unfolding the pain underneath the actions and leaving us with a bitter taste in our mouths. An heavy experience.
Relevant awards: Fipresci - best film (Venice)
