Shame Directed by Steve McQueen

Critics reviews

Broad strokes are so inept that it’s not at all hard to believe Shame was co-written by the same person responsible for The Iron Lady; at the same time, though, it works beautifully in isolated patches… McQueen still seems to me a superlative filmmaker in search of something to say; this was probably the worst subject he could have chosen.
