Shame ★★★★½

"We're not bad people, we just come from a bad place."

All you want is to feel like a normal person. You, though, are presently the product of an abnormal past, so that may not ever be possible. Your closest and maybe the only real relationship in your life is with your sibling, who is a constant reminder of your shameful inability to be normal.

What a potent film. Almost intolerably tense at times. Easily my favorite Michael Fassbender performance of the ones I've seen thus far.
