This review is from: Shame (DVD)
Great drama for anyone who likes the messy emotions of human nature and who isn't looking for some quick resolve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Disturbing, June 24 2012
This review is from: Shame (DVD)
Shame (La honte) (DVD)

Not an easy experience to view this film, but well worth it for the quality of the acting, the vision of the director, the atmosphere and the extraordinary camera work. Michael Fassbender is mesmerizing in a bleak, difficult and unsympathetic role. Carey Mulligan is excellent as always, vulnerable, unsure of herself and a little desperate.

The acting holds your attention, but it is the direction and the camera, which spares nothing from view, that makes it all work so effectively.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fassbender At His Best Here. Very Mesmerizing Film.., Jan. 27 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Shame [Blu-ray + DVD] (Blu-ray)
"You know I've waited a while before I wrote a review on this movie"for the simple
fact to see what the response that other people give,and it's nothing more than astounding
to see what was writhen, "Shame" will give you the impression,to some people I guess,that it's
not about Shame? even though it's called Shame"when you're not used to seeing movies like this,
people think it shouldn't be shown, this is not wear life should Stop,just because they like things normal,
if we're normal I absolutely beg to differ,it's almost like a surprise to them of what they just saw,
all the things that goes on today,doesn't surprised me one bit,Sex Addict's can be a whole case lode
for some doctors I'm sure,never been there,I think the only guy,and they pick the right one,is "Michael Fassbender"
to play this role,if you want to see a really and more Humanistic movie,watch the "Hunger" with "M.Fassdender"
it's a true story too.
“After viewing this film, I was wondering what the Human Body was made for,how do we see our self in this time,
as to back in the yesteryear, when sex was Oh so taboo,man go to work woman stay home, take care of the kids,
Not today,some people still talk about how it used to be so good back then,what they don’t realize is, all those problem,
that we have now, they had it too, only difference now, know one talked about it,which brings me to this movie of sexuality,
and the depravity of it that some people need more than others, here's a guy that can’t seem to get enough of it,
who roam the bars at night looking for what he wants, sometimes man or woman, what I absolutely love about the movie,
when we think there’s not a lot of people in the world that don’t have this problem, we could be very wrong about that,
it’s like any other addict, whether it be drugs. food. or health nut, it’s the same dam thing, this is why it’s called “Shame” for a reason,
and the reason is, which family will bring that up at the dinner table, hey guess what Mom or honey, I’m a sex addict,
what this teaches us, this man needs what he needs, that’s sex, even though he’s successful in what he dose,there's another side to him,
and that side is his body his genitals, and most importantly his Mind and what he feels, you may not want to know of even talk about it,
but the beauty of it is, it’s there right in front of us, this is a movie that will shape you,of who we are,whether you want to believe it of not,
2.35:1 Widescreen.
5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
Runtime 111 Minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars i absolutely DESPISE blu-ray / dvd COMBOS ..... but ...., April 19 2012

This review is from: Shame [Blu-ray + DVD] (Blu-ray)
if you are a fan of emotional intensity, introspection, human psychology, and CINEMA ......

and you have a developed sense of empathy toward your fellow human beings ....

you will not be disappointed by the experience you will have watching this FILM.

it is not a particularly pleasant experience, but it is fascinating, and rewarding, in its own way ...... and at the same time it is gloriously beautiful filmmaking ...... i've seen it only once, and it almost struck me as a silent film ....... as it seems we spend a lot of time immersed in watching 'brandon' think and act. and yet there is plenty of 'dialogue', and the sound design is subtle and quite powerful .... this includes the way the score is mixed within the overall soundtrack .....

i now want to see mcqueen's film 'hunger'

well done. to ALL involved in making this film.

exceptionally courageous performances by fassbender and mulligan

I can't wait for McQueen's next feature ... 'twelve years a slave' (2013)

4.0 out of 5 stars Deep. Powerful. Artistic, Oct. 5 2012

Charles Dimov "Vice President" (Toronto, Canada) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Shame (DVD)
Certainly this is a disturbing movie, and one that makes you reflect on it to fully understand. I must acknowledge still being baffled by many emotions that the characters experienced.

Memorable. A good one to discuss with friends over drinks long afterward.
