Director: Steve McQueen. Cast: Michael Fassbender, Stuart Graham, Liam McMahon. 96 min. UK/Ireland. Political/Drama.
WOW!!! An entire feature film ... without dialogue?! Hitchcock made Rope without any editing, and Kiarostami makes films by eliminating crucial story characters. But how is it even possible to make a movie without dialogue - especially when of all subjects, it's based on a true political event? I defy you to watch this visually unrelenting (and at times repulsive) movie, and say you were bored. About Bobby Sands' hunger strike in a British prison, it even contains a 20 minute indiscernible conversation between two characters - and you still don't miss the story. Don't you want to try something different?
PS: Look it up on imdb.com. Hunger won a crazy number of awards.
