S H A M E

Fox Searchlight has created a new website, just for SHAME - Go here.


If you're attending the AFI Film Festival screening of Shame tonight on Wednesday in Los Angeles, please share with us your thoughts on the film!

I'm there. Fox needs to promote Shame as much as possible, make sure a sufficient number of people see it. It deserves that much at the very microscopic least.

Yes! I literally got chills up my arms from going there. The race has begun, Fox Searchlight is on the ball. Very nice

So I have a question, does anyone know where I can find a list of the 'select cities' that will screen Shame? I'm wanting to know if we will get it here in the Dallas area, but I haven't had much luck finding out.

Simone said...

No such list has been established yet. Keep watching the new Shame site, that will most definitely tell you as Dec 2nd approaches, which cities will show Shame. It'll start out in very select cities, so, be prepared to drive if you have to.

Is there a different unedited version of Shame released in theatres? Or is that just a rumor? I heard the one Fox is releasing in the US is an edited, but still NC-17 version.

Simone said...

There is only one version of Shame and it will be shown in its entirety at select theaters when released. There have been false and misleading rumors about the film being cut, but it has not.

Hi Simone!

I’m a new follower of your site and just wanted to say “well done!” I think it’s great what you are doing and I especially appreciate your positive energy as well as your enthusiasm in honoring and respecting Michael Fassbender. I look forward to checking your site!

Blessings,

Hello Veronica! thanks for visiting FF and I hope you continue to enjoy it. It's a great time to be a Michael Fassbender fan!

Hi Simone!
I've been following your lovely blog for about a year and this is my first post!
I caught a screening of 'Shame' at the Festival de Nouveau Cinema in Montreal (it's Canada's oldest film fest). 'Shame' is the best film I've seen so far this year (and I see A LOT of movies!). It's visual storytelling at its best: starkly beautiful, seductive yet emotionally engaging, and unforgettable.
Michael Fassbender gives the performance of the year. I love actors who say very little and reveal everything. If I recall, Michael did not have much dialogue. But you could read what he was thinking and feeling. This takes great skill as well as great talent.
As for the nudity, it was graphic but non-sexual. Like 'Hunger', Steve McQueen uses the human body as the landscape for conflict and redemption. Strong stuff.
I'm sorry this post is so long! But I thought that I would throw my two bits in regarding this incredible film. I could go on, in fact! But I won't. :)
Keep up the great work on your blog. It's refreshing to see a fan site devoted to the work and not the fluff.

There is definitely a red carpet for Shame at AFI.

@ anonymous, i don't know if you're the same anon who kindly gave advice in the earlier post, but just want to share per afi staff, there will be a q & a or panel in the theater itself either before or after the movie. if mf is walking the red carpet, there's no reason he wouldn't be at the panel.

afi staff said there will an additional theater opened for overflow audience, but the live panel/q & a is in the main cinema.

the red carpet area itself is tiny. based on what anon said, i think the chance of getting face time with mf there is pretty much nil. better to get a seat close to the q & a/panel?

Good to know. Thanks.

There were screenings from years before where the red carpet for AFI was a big deal.

Thought Shame was going to be one of those events. Guess I was wrong. Thanks for clearing that up.

Wow. That was very snazy and top notch. The music and Fassy were fantastic.
