Description: The main character – a New Yorker who suffers from erotomania and unable to control his sexual life. He is trying to gain the support of his family, as well as seeking help from his collegues.
Review: Harsh in their subject matter and purpose of film “Shame”, which actually have to be careful. Many viewers not to not pay attention to the strict rating «NC-17″ and not realize the opportunity to see such in theaters.
More prepared viewer will consider the work of Steve McQueen from a different sight, he would be able to abstract from what he saw, despite inherent in each of us the principles of parental and public education. But this film lays bare not only the hero of Michael Fassbender, is a clever film authors comment on the time in which the concept of shame as it sounds less and less.
As drama and film were generally mediocre, sometimes prolonged, sometimes you want some explanation of why it focuses on the director, why the camera here and not there. Although many even seem predictable script, overall the film kind of advise to someone close is risky, and it is in many intimate scenes candor.
But there is a lever in the film “Shame”, which is like a heavenly light throughout the darkness, it is played by Michael Fassbender. The actor spent his hero, and its absence from the nominees for the “Oscar” says only that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and considered the work of Steve McQueen too revealing to still help her gain more popularity among the audience.
I would be surprised, getting this film at least in some categories at the top award, the discharge is from the film, which should be a mood and a desire to see for the rest of it is either nonsense or shock. But only for the powerful and one of the best male roles of the past year, put a picture of a high ball.
