Shame – Film and DVD -------------------------------------------------- Michael Fassbender is fast becoming one of my favourite actors. I just hope because of his hunk status and huge female following that he doesn’t get attention for the wrong reasons. Brad Pitt’s career, although superb...

“Shame I Didn't Care”

published 01/04/2013

ProSome strong performances.

ConsA lack of focus and virtually no plot.

Brandon is a smooth-talking, handsome and financially successful businessman living in Manhattan. But beneath all of the trappings of success lies a jaded sex addict with an uncontrollable appetite for women and pornography. When his needy, self-harming younger sister Sissy turns up at his...

For Brandon (Michael Fassbender), sex is what starts and ends his day. He wakes up, walks into the bathroom, and masturbates whilst showering. At night, the internet from his laptop gives him access to all sorts of pornography. That’s not all. He often enjoys the company of prostitutes, many one...

“Shame- Fassbender Bares All”

published 30/01/2012

ProFautless perfromances

ConsUncomfortable to watch at times

I’ve been struggling somewhat since I saw this film to figure out exactly what to write about it, so I am sorry if this review seems to read more like a stream of consciousness as I try to figure out what to say. The reason I’ve been finding it difficult to articulate my response to Shame is...

ProGreat visually

ConsWhat actually happens in the film

I went to see this film at the cinema a few weeks ago, I still don't 100% know what I think of it. First of all if you are into films which look nice, then this film certainly ticks the box. The cinematography is beautiful, a very memorable shot is when Michael Fassbender's character is running...

Product Information : Shame (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

In this powerful but excruciating drama, Liv Ullmann and Max Von Sydow play Eva and Jan Rosenberg, a married couple who have withdrawn to a farm on a remote island while their country is ravaged by a violent civil war. After the island is overrun by rebel troops, all hell breaks loose, and an attempt to escape from the war zone fails. Soon the need to survive brings out the worst in Eva and Jan, and their relationship suffers irrevocable damage. Using one couple's descent into moral corruption as an example, Ingmar Bergman shows how civility and society can break down under extreme conditions.
