I want to rub this poster all over me – Shame
The first poster has surfaced for the new film, Shame. Why is Shame so special? Yes, it does share its title with a particularly poignant Bergman film from the sixties. But also because Steve McQueen is directing. And Michael Fassbender is starring. Yes, it’s true. And if this film is anything like Hunger, it’s going to be one of my favorite films of the last few years.
There’s not much about the project that has been released so far. Except for the following brief synopsis:
Brandon (Michael Fassbender, Inglourious Basterds, Hunger, A Dangerous Method) is a 30-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, Brandon’s world spirals out of control.
From director Steve McQueen (Hunger), Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us.
Sexual depravity? McQueen? Fassbender? I can barely wait. Shame is set for release in 2011.
