"Shame" is the first NC-17 movie that I saw in seven years. I always see an NC-17 movie as an R rated movie that tries too hard. The MPAA should have given the NC-17 rating to "Bucky Lawson: Born to Be a Star." Only saying. Michael Fassbender plays a man whgo has a sex addiction. If he isn't having sex with anyone, he's on the coumputer watching porm. One day her disterb sister shows up at his door. She is played by Carey Mulligan in another fine performance. But the film's biggest credit goes to Michael Fassbender in a thankless role. His character did hide his sex addiction and we see him in possibly the worst way. There a lot of sex and nudity in the movie, but that's not the important part of the movie. What's important is the heart of the movie lies a case stuydyt of a man who was driven to addiction and how it nearly cost the woman he loves.
