Shame (2011)

Director: Steve McQueen. Cast: Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale. 101 min. NC-17. UK. Drama.

This is a movie about a sex addict. No, ... this is not a movie about a sex addict. It's about a common person who is so proud of his independent high-end lifestyle, and has become so impotent in social relations, he has become a sex addict. And when you think of those roots, and the possibility that we may all harbor them, this film becomes very disturbing - and very scary. Fassbender has proven himself as a powerful actor, showing the ability to convey a multitude of messages by the mere glimpse of an eye. Beware this dark movie.
