Shame ★★★★★

we’re not bad people, we just come from a bad place.

steve mcqueen’s Shame changes the way i look at sex, addiction, masturbation, pornography and michael fassbender

hauntingly crafted and solemnly executed, Shame not only has some of the best performances of all time, but my new favorite opening shot, opening sequence, and one of my favorite choices of camera movement and composition

this remarkable film tackles its gritty, personal and intimate themes amazingly well, and that’s something i hope steve mcqueen is proud of, as not many directors would be able to do something of this caliber

i am amazed

for the first time in a movie i felt like i could just be blown away every time i watch this in the future

i am so pleasantly surprised and blessed to have come in contact with this film
