If you’ve missed first two features in our series, you can catch up here. We started things off with the London Premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1 and then featured Scorsece’s HUGO. This week it’s Shame starring Michael Fassbender which... I mean, unlike the previous two profiled films, I promise you there won’t be any crying babies in the theatre for this one.
You should see Shame this weekend for many reasons:
See it for Michael Fassbender who delivers a performance that will stay with you for a long, long time.
See it for Steve McQueen, one of the most exciting, most original directors working right now. It’s like following an author. You can watch the progression of a true visionary.
See it because film is meant to challenge and provoke. Shame doesn’t talk down to you. But it will make you feel uncomfortable. And not in the way that the new red band trailer makes you feel uncomfortable either, you horny Fassy fans! But THIS, this is how you cut a trailer, non? Sex addiction’s initial thrill and pull presented in a tense 90 seconds...before the consequences come around and slap you in the face.
The link to the red band trailer is here. It’s a studio-released preview approved for restricted audiences, and there is brief nudity in the clip. The original “safe for work” trailer is below:
