Seka seeks help from psychiatrist Michael a solid and likable performance by Paul Thomas , who uses hypnosis as a means for Seka to reconnect with her sexuality and resume satisfying her carnal desires. However, the most important element for the success of the film lies in the performances: in the hands of less committed actors Brandon and Sissy's conflicts would be unconvincing, but McQueen wisely chooses Michael Fassbender both had previously worked together on Hunger , who literally bares body and soul to take Brandon's emotions to the limit and does it so impressively in a brave and courageous performance and unfortunately the Academy possibly considered too intense for consideration in their nominations. Or you can just let the camera run on and on as you film people running or -- oh, please just kill me now! I also enjoyed that in scenes where Brandon is walking through his neighborhood or going for a run, we are seeing actual storefronts and landmarks that exist in that location. His sister Sissy is also a dysfunctional young woman, weaker than him, that needs support from her older brother but he is unable to help her.

Brandon is a tragic character.
Brandon's limit's knows no bounds. Moving on to the graphic sexual nature of the film, I can't claim it was entirely gratuitous as Brandon's sexual compulsion was the pulse of the film, however it felt after a while like I was watching a bad porno flick that succeeded only in turning me off - for what seemed at the time like the rest of my life. Sometimes they're good, sometimes they're bad, but a script gives you a path find your way through the film. What's so special about that? Fact is, this film is a lacking idea transformed into almost 2 hours of complete nonsense. Moreover, such lovely ladies as super hot trashy brunette Veri Knotty, luscious Mai Lin, pretty Lysa Thatcher, and slender knockout Bonnie Holiday all perform with utmost scorching aplomb.
It is fun to see Michael Fassbender walking around naked.

Sometimes, the movie shows us one thing, leading us to one conclusion, and then shows us a different conclusion. 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. Soon Seka finds herself in a world of unlimited ecstasy, observing and participating in encounters with men and women, each more exciting than the last. On one hand, it is an expertly crafted film about addiction that packs a great lead performance.
Later the main character's boss walks up to him and pinches him on the bottom. This is not that film. On the other hand, it is a maddening film that answers very little it asks and sometimes shocks just for the sake of it. He knows that if people found out about his condition he would be ostracized. While James Badge Dale is effective in his small role as Brandon's smarmy and sleazy boss David, it is Mulligan who truly compliments Fassbender. In Shame, McQueen dissects the very personal and often shocking sexual addiction of Brandon Sullivan Michael Fassbender. There are probably millions of loner males who indulge in the same behavior.
In terms of the performances by Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, while I generally felt they embodied their roles well within the constraints of the material, I found myself distracted at times by their accents. Such details along with a number of well executed subway scenes gave me the sense that Brandon is someone I could pass on the street or sit across from on the subway without a second thought or insight into the darkness of his character. Luke resolves to forsake life on the road and to provide for his newfound family, taking a job as car mechanic with Robin Ben Mendelsohn.

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. Fassbender plays a man off the scale with severe emotional trauma that manifests itself in constant sex addiction - he is in break down. She does not cover herself as they talk. Since seeing this buzzed-about film last evening, my mind has been swirling around the many elements I disliked along with genuine curiosity as to how it has fared so well in reviews. Having heard terrific things about the film, I ventured out and snagged a last minute ticket to the premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Michael Fassbender gives an interesting, strong performance as a sexual addict. It never feels forced or for the sake of showing a genital. Does this add to our understanding of the character? You know at the start of the film that Brandon has a lot of sex. I was very disappointed, but not surprised, that this film received no recognition at the awards ceremony.
