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.
