Shame ★★★★★

This really hit hard in many ways, a fair amount of which were painful. It's hard to find the words to describe my thoughts on this brilliant film. If I try to dive into the messages and themes of the film and how they impacted me, I'd probably be describing the impact it had on me in a way I'm not quite comfortable putting on the internet. Plus, I feel like I haven't quite gathered all my emotions this soon after watching; it's a film I'll need to sit on for a couple days, so I'll just talk about the surface level stuff.

Excellent acting, great directing, brilliant writing, beautiful cinematography, masterful plot development and choices for tone, and everything you see on screen really does serve a thoughtful purpose. One of the best character studies ever put on to film that I'll probably come back to soon and write a full review.
