This is a poignant look at a character with an addiction. It's also a a great drama about a brother and sister relationship. The standout acting and directing helped pull me into this story and it carried a satisfying emotional weight. Fassbender is the center of this film and he gives an outstanding performance. The film does earn it's tainted NC-17 rating, but more for it's adult themes and maturely handled storytelling than it's use of multiple sexual acts. The movie actually desensitizes it's sex and nudity, because of the way it's used as part of the story. I find myself liking this more on repeated viewings.

Es gibt eine Nahaufnahme in Shame von Michael Fassbenders Gesicht voller Wut und Trauer. Sein Charakter Brandon hat einen Orgasmus. Sein Körper wird dabei ausgeblendet, genauso wie seine Partnerin. Die Nahaufnahme will uns ausschliesslich zeigen, wie er leidet. Nichts weiter ist Sex für ihn als dass er sich selbst missbraucht. Brandon ist Anfang 30, fit, allein lebend in einem Apartment in Manhattan. Er arbeitet irgendetwas mit dem Computer; was auch immer - es interessiert ihn selbst nicht. Manchmal geht er abends aus mit seinem Chef David (James Badge Dale) in irgendwelche Single Bars. Brandon hat mehr Glück als David und lernt eine Frau kennen. Glück? Es interessiert ihn nicht, Sex ist etwas, dass er ertragen muss. Zum ersten Mal las ich wohl in den 90ern etwas über Sex-Sucht. Auf dem ...

I hate myself for not watching this movie back in

Back in 2011 I heard this movie was getting great reviews and Chris Stuckmann said "the movie was more fun watching the movie with a old man", So I said the heck with it so I watched the movie and I got to say I loved this movie, 2011 was the year for Michael Fassbender because he was brilliant in X-men first class and this movie. the story is about Michael Fassbender character who lives in new York with his sister and he as one thing that is wrong with him and that is sex addiction, he has sex with women every night but one day on the train station he sawed the most beautiful women in the world and he can not stop thinking about her and hes sex addiction start to die off. this movie is just brilliant just a well made movie and I hate myself for not watching this movie back in 2011 but oh...

Shame review

Definitely one of the most artistic, important and well acted films about the topic of sex. Not for kids and teenagers since it has some really frisky scenes. It's title is striking enough which means an affect, emotion, cognition, state, or condition, and it's hard to be moved by this thought provoking movie. A powerful picture like this involves a very talented and believable lead, and a solid supporting cast to make it work. Brandon (Michael Fassbender) is a successful executive with a pervert boss who abuses the company's benefits. Sissy (Carey Mulligan) is the little sister of Brandon who sings and gets with his married boss David (James Badge Dale). Score was subtle since the moments on film were powerful, acting just effective and premise just realistic. Best memorable line...

its a hard life being a sex addict

A intresting and dark movie about a guy whos main purpous in life is sex whether its hookers or picking up girls in bars or internet porn at home or work he is addicted to it and will get it anyway he can.
but everything changes when his emotionally troubled sister comes to stay. he doesnt want her there he just wants his fix of sex and to carry on as his doing..
The relationship with his sister seems a very odd one and will leave people with some theories to why he and his sister are so messed up emotionally. , they seem close yet he seems to hate her. which in her mental state only makes her more needy. the film has nudity and sex and takes a dark turn .but its not your usual showing it for effect. its dark all the way.
if you like dark serious dramas with some naughtness then thi...
