  • Michael Fassbender delivers a bold and brilliantly immersive performance as a sex addict in Shame. He is so raw and riveting you won't be able to take your eyes off him. show more

  • Shame has a lolling pace and stunning visual clarity. Structurally, it's close to perfect - its precision echoed in the Glenn Gould piano recordings of Bach keyboard works that Brandon listens to obsessively. show more

  • Fassbender's portrayal is truly haunting, and when he sobs, dramatically unraveling, it's clear he's imprisoned by his physical urges. show more

    disturbing film, manages to bring many different emotions in the same film, you get off, angry, sad, happy, all thanks to a memorable performance Fassbender. The only downside is the exaggeration in showing the parts below the main actor.

    The look, the acting and feel to the movie are all excellent. But the story is very unsatisfying. Watching someone disintegrate isn\'t very entertaining or enlightening when any type of reasoning isn\'t offered.
