Jack Hill’s review published on Letterboxd:
Even though this is not a typical film about addiction, I would still say it maybe one of the best on the topic.
Shame does such a great job on talking about the issue of addiction and just how it can affect your daily life and how it can lead you to a dark path. Shame also just feels so authentic that its pretty scary and you just hope that when your that age that is not what you end up like. Michael Fassbender gives easily the best performance of his carrer. Hoenstly this move could easily go up to a 5.
