Steve McQueen’s latest film, Shame (that’s the black, British, not-dead Steve McQueen) played the Venice film festical to rave reviews last month, and hits theaters December 2nd, smack in the middle of Oscar season. The film, which stars Michael F. Assbender as a sexy sex addict (THE SEXIEST ADDICTION), has a new trailer you can watch below the jump. It features the line (delivered by Fassbender’s boss):
“Your hard drive is filthy. I mean, it is dirrrty.”
That’s right, Michael Fassbender likes to watch. I hope that becomes this year’s “you’re changin’ that boy’s lahfe.” This movie is for you, FilmDrunkards.
Shame is directed by Steve McQueen, who also wrote the script with Abi Morgan. The controversial and sexual drama stars Michael Fassbender as a 30-something living in New York City who can’t control his sex life and sexual desire, and things get thrown out of whack when his “fragile” sister, played by Carey Mulligan, moves into his apartment. Fox Searchlight says, “Steve McQueen’s courageous exploration of modern life’s extremes is breathtaking. He has crafted an extraordinary film that probes some of the deepest and darkest issues ever portrayed on screen.” [FirstShowing]
Whoa, hold the phone, Carey Mulligan plays someone fragile? Hot dog, now I’ve seen it all. That chick’s like a wounded dove made of porcelain. Sorry, not my type. Me, I like a girl who’s sturdy, can take punch. Built like a Clydesdale made of meatball subs.
