Here it is, the final official post of 2012 that will take this blog into 2013 with a bang. Or, hopefully without an actual bang but you know what I mean. Whilst this post is being prepared, basically a week before this will be read by the eyes of you, I’m already quite thrilled of how 2012 turned out.
With all my heart and all my brain matter, I will confess loving Michael Fassbender until my eyes and ears can no longer enjoy his presence. Sounds a bit too dramatic? Alright, I will rephrase my thought: I think I love Michael Fassbender!
Now as we have that personal and presumably very awkward moment out of the way, there is an important task at hand and that is one of putting down thoughts about the movie Shame.
To follow the oh so late The Rum Diary trailer I decided to post a much newer one. Shame is the second movie of the British movie-maker Steve McQueen following his first movie called Hunger – I sense a theme already. He is the director and the writer for both of these movies and that’s not the only thing in common between the two: Michael Fassbender portrays the main character in Hunger and in Shame as well.
Michael Fassbender is on a high right now, his movies turn out from right to left and for me it’s easy to like his characters and also Fassbender himself. Therefore I think I’ll watch McQueens previous work and then Shame which tells a story about a brother and a sister (played by Carey Mulligan) who are beginning to live together and that stirs up some problems. Shame premiers on Decemeber 2nd.
PS: The poster for Shame is absolutely fabulous and since I already started to post movie posters in a larger scale I thought it would be a shame if I didn’t post Shame’s poster like this. Besides the poster also some storyline to the movie, shame between the sheets – I wonder who is this man who feels ashamed,,,
