The scene where Brandon (Michael Fassbender) and Sissy (Carey Mulligan) have an argument on the couch while watching TV is an unbroken take of 6 minutes and 15 seconds. See more »
When the subway train is stopped and evacuated, we see the station sign outside it and the station begins with a B (Brooklyn Bridge?). But when Brandon gets off the train there, he is at the 28th Street station. See more »
This film instantly drew me in. Fassbender's performance is complex and truly believable.I can honestly say that if you are not haunted by the torment of both Michael Fassbender's and Carey Mulligan's performance, then you are in denial. The pain is apparent, the intrigue of what happened to these siblings is staring you in the face throughout the film. The role's Fassbender has chosen lately have made me an ultimate fan! Another McQueen movie, HUNGER, also stars Fassbender as an Irishman in political protest against the corrupt government of the "80's. I tremendously enjoy watching him on the screen. Michael Fassbender relays raw emotion and true passion to create believable and relatable characters. Im looking forward to future projects.
