Shame,Shame...Shame? I think not.

Author: danielsimon from Australia
27 February 2012

I think this film is very self explained. If you are going to walk into this film with the mind set "It's just about a guy with a sex addiction" Then you are going to be surely shaken.

Yes the film is about sex addiction but its more about the characters themselves. You have the needy sister that needs to grow up and the brother that is so wrapped up with his addiction he has no time for anyone else. He would rather do whatever it is for his addiction by any means.

The score to the film is perfect. Even without dialogue you still know what each and every character is going through. Carey's New York, New York does just that.

The feeling of the film is so natural you get lost into it and don't even think that you are watching a film. McQueen does an amazing job with just his second debut film.

I would have to say this is one of my favorite films of 2011 hands down.!
