Shame

Shame is the second feature film from visual artist Steve McQueen, and like his previous work, Hunger, it is visceral and mesmerizing.

Set in Manhattan, the film follows Brandon (Michael Fassbender), a 30-something corporate executive, as he struggles with sex addiction. He has casual encounters with women he meets on the streets, hardcore sex with prostitutes and masturbates to double-anal videos he stores on his hard drive at work.

Though the NC-17 film is rife with sex—in full-frontal detail—there is little pleasure in it. Instead, Shame captures what it’s really like to live with sex addiction: Brandon is devastatingly lonely and emotionally shut off from the world. That is, until his chanteuse sister (Carey Mulligan) comes to live with him, further complicating his life and exposing his shame.

Through delicate cinematography, long takes and, most of all, Fassbender’s stellar performance, Shame is an intense personal journey that is as rattling as it is gorgeous.

Shame is now playing in select theaters. For when and where to see the film, visit Fox Searchlight

Into The Abyss: A Tale of Death, A Tale of Life

Werner Herzog has a new documentary coming out.

“a riveting examination of a horrible crime which probes the human psyche to explore why people kill—and why the state kills. In intimate conversations with those involved, including 28-year-old death row inmate Michael Perry (who was scheduled to dieight days after his interview with Herzog), the filmmaker achieves what he describes as “a gaze into the abyss of the human soul.” As he’s so often done before, Herzog’s investigation unveils layers of humanity, making an enlightening trip out of ominous territory.”
