Shame Blu-ray Combo Pack review

Brandon (Michael Fassbender) is a New Yorker who shuns intimacy with women but feeds his desires with a compulsive addiction to sex. When his wayward younger sister (Carey Mulligan) moves into his apartment and stirs up memories of their shared painful past, Brandon’s insular life spirals out of control.

Available Exclusively on Blu-ray Combo Pack April 17


I had never heard of this movie but I chose it anyways because I like watching new movies and never know if you will like it or not. Anyways if you want to watch this movie make sure the children are out or in bed because there is a lot of nudity both male and female ( Rated NC-17)  so if you do not like movies with nudity then don't even bother watching this one. I thought this movie could have been better with a bit less nudity and I do not have problems with movies with nudity but really this movie didn't really need so much.  Also the story I found to be a bit boring and didn't think the acting was all that great. Personally I will not be watching this movie ever again and I do not recommend it.

I give this 1 out of 5 stars

  1. I think the nudity is vital the plot and storytelling of the movie, without it you wouldn't be able to understand the self-destruction going on in Brandon's life due to his sexual addiction, also the lack cuts in scenes is very well done, when some scenes are 4-8 minutes and one continuous shot, you really feel the tension going on. Yes it is not a movie for children, hence why it is rated NC-17, but it also has a mature theme and subject, sexual addiction that if not in the right mindset, might not be appreciated at all. I would challenge you to give it a second watch and try to see past the nudity and focus on the struggle Brandon goes through.
