I finally got to Steve McQueen’s Shame last night. Yes, it came out over a year ago, but the Netflix queue is long. I really enjoyed McQueen’s Hunger, which was excellent, and I had heard many good things so I was excited for his new movie. Well… I didn’t care for it. I really like Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, and they did do good performances. The film did show the bleakness of New York City in wintertime well. I think the downside was that the plot was weak. Maybe I’m wrong, but I just feel that the hype that his film got was not merited.
