Superb performance from Fassbender (again), but this wasn't an enjoyable watch. I loved the slowness of Hunger as we watched the disintegration of Sands, but Shame was just too slow. It was really only Fassbender's performance (which actually made you pity this rather pathetic human being, due to his ability to convey the character's self-loathing), that kept the film afloat.
