Movie Reviews

  • viewers will be left as unsatisfied
    4 of 5 by Anton Bitel [Eye for Film ]
  • though the sex scenes aren't as graphic as you might expect, not that it matters - but that it dares to confront social taboos with an admirable integrity, not turning incestual as one expected it might
    4 of 5 by Shaun Munro [What Culture ]
  • there's enough graphic sexuality and nudity
    4 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • the story inches toward its hackneyed climax of glaringly foreshadowed melodrama it collapses like a weakened erection under a heavy blanket
    Review rate : C- by Cole Smithey [ ]
  • the movie is superficially bold, but lacks the bravery to go all the way
    3 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • the more time you've had to sit and ponder Shame, the more deeply it will impress you, weaving itself into your consciousness
    Review rate : A- by Laremy Legel [ ]
  • much of the film is banal or pretentious, or both-vacuous vignettes about emptiness
    by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal ]
  • many of the longer dialogue scenes are done in one shot, which is impressive enough
    by Edward Douglas [ ]
  • luxuriously appointed but impersonal, borderline rancid world in which the characters' noxious traits can stew and fester
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • isn't an easy film to sit through, to describe or to figure out, but it's riveting, spectacular, passionate cinema
    by Andrew O'Hehir [ ]
  • has everything in place to be a really interesting movie
    by Dana Stevens [Slate ]
  • difficult to watch but even harder to turn away from
    by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times ]
  • creating an international audience largely desensitised to violence and horror but physically shocked by the sight of an adult male's penis
    by Charlie Lyne [Ultra Culture ]
  • articulates a shallow, even mundane, understanding of an uninteresting man's sex addiction-in a vibrant city rendered dull and anonymous
    1.5 of 4 by Ed Gonzalez [Slant Magazine ]
  • anything but romantic, as we shall soon witness in the most explicitly physical terms of empty carnality
    4 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • a carefully crafted curiosity that gives a grateful audience the opportunity to get involved, rather than merely observe
    by Ed Whitfield [The Ooh Tray ]
