We're not bad people. We just come from a bad place.

Shame (2011)

A somewhat compelling but ultimately hollow experience which is perhaps a deliberate mirror of the way the main character feels about sex. However the film is not quite tight enough, the script not quite sharp enough to bring the viewer to care.
The performances help, a great deal, as does the generally wonderful photography and good use of music.
A near miss, but an interesting one.

  1. What? you're saying that this movie's scrip is not sharp enough to bring the viewer to care? man you're mistaken, i basically found the script great. did you know that sometimes simple words make make people reflect about life? this movie needs no words, this movies speaks by itself. The most amazing thinh is that what happens in this movie happens to many people in life.
