Masterpiece? Really? I had expectations after seeing the trailer and
having seen Fassbender play in other movies, but boy was I
disappointed! Not by the actors, even though I thought Carey Mulligan
was better in other movies, Michael Fassebender is actually the only
good thing I kept from the movie. Thhe story doesn't go anywhere in my
opinion. McQueen only gives glimpses of few things that are abandoned
right away like his relationship to his colleague, his family past, his
sister (wasn't it the center point of the movie, to have a situation
where she disturbs everything? she's not present enough for me). I
would have preferred to have shorter or fewer sex scenes (all the sex
showed does not serve the story that much after a while we've seen it
all!) and more deeper views on Brandon's relationships.
I don't mind to see a dark movie (actually I usually appreciate it), or a slow movie where it's more about contemplating, getting close to the characters to feel what it's about. But "Shame" didn't get me at all, I was just glad when it was over, a bit mad to have paid a ticket, and very disappointed.
