I saw ‘Shame’ last night

Standard

One of my good friend and I went to go see this movie called Shame starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan at Sunshine Cinemas in the Lower East Side [LES] here in Manhattan. I really don’t have words for this experience all I can say is “wow…”

This movie is nuts, it’s sick and it’s haunting. The sad part is … I really liked it! The story is about Brandon (Michael Fassbender) who appears to lead a very private life, which is perfect for him because guess what?! Brandon’s a perv… and by perv I mean he’s unhealthily addicted to sex. He pays prostitutes, he watches ridiculous amounts of porn and even crashed his computer at work because he can’t even keep it together at his place of employment. His perfectly private life is interrupted when his sister Sissy (Carey Mulligan) shows up and decides to stay with him… I won’t give away anymore of the story, you’ll have to go see it.

Please don’t judge me after you watch it, I’m not sick or anything but it just seemed so real. Nothing is really sugarcoated in this film. It’s just … {Pauses to think of word} Raw.

…The acting was superb in my opinion Carey Mulligan was great! Michael Fassbender was also phenomenal! I’ll be watching for these two, that’s for sure.
