Michael Fassbender in "Shame"

From a review... "Fassbender walks around with his dick hanging out and flopping against his upper thigh, and I suppose it ought to be acknowledged that he's fairly well hung." So, queens, have you pre-ordered your tickets???

by Anonymousreply 26702/13/2013

I read some reviews, what is the big secret he and his sister have? Were they victims of childhood abuse, or did they commit incest?

from The Times UK 4stars/5

Michael Fassbender struts around naked in Shame like Michaelangelo%E2%80%99s David trapped in a New York apartment. There is no question of a fig leaf here, either. Indeed this searingly intimate film refuses to turn its penetrating gaze away, even for a second, from a damaged man and his sexual obsessions. British director Steve McQueen pushes Fassbender right over the top, and the Irish-German actor%E2%80%99s brave, tortured and remarkably athletic performance must put him in the running for a best actor award at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday. McQueen last worked with Fassbender on Hunger, his award-winning drama about IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands, and again the actor%E2%80%99s body is on the front line. Fassbender play Brandon, a thirtysomething executive who on the surface appears to have a perfect life: a minimalist white apartment, a well-paid job, an easy charm, and an uncanny ability to pick up women. But his sex drive is unstoppable: a prostitute, a pretty passenger on the subway, a career girl in a bar, never mind top-ups in the shower and the gents at work, often in the space of 24 hours. Brandon constantly needs the oblivion of orgasm, and we want to know why. Brandon%E2%80%99s secret life is upended by the arrival of his younger sister Sissy, played by Carey Mulligan. Needy, weepy and very messy around the flat, Sissy clearly exasperates and disturbs Brandon in a way beyond normal sibling rivalry. Yet when he goes to a club to hear her sing, he is incredibly moved, despite himself. So are we, as Sissy croons %E2%80%9CNew York, New York%E2%80%9D in what ought to be a clich%C3%A9, but with a slow, breathy tempo takes on a deeper resonance. McQueen dares to hold his camera unmoving on her face for about two minutes, and then turns and does the same to her brother. As a former video artist, he knows the power of stillness. Another superb single shot has Brandon run through the streets of Manhattan at night, angrily pounding block after block, leaping intersections, and you feel the film crew must have committed some major traffic violations to follow him. The movie has a sleek sheen to it, and the many and varied sex scenes are more coolly observational than erotic, with a classical soundtrack including Bach, which somehow sanitizes the sleaziness. There is also some humour: a creaky first date in an upscale restaurant, with a waiter who keeps interrupting with ornately-described specials, and a scene where Brandon merely eyes a woman on the subway, and watches her melt in approximately two stops until she%E2%80%99s clutching the subway pole like a dancer. This is a very adult film, in both senses. Yet in the end your focus is only on Fassbender%E2%80%99s face, particularly at one point when he is in bed with two women, supposedly having a fine time. His forehead corrugates and his eyes suddenly empty, allowing us to look right in to his suppurating, trapped soul.

Toronto 2011%E2%80%99s first domestic acquisition is for the acclaimed sex addiction drama starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan.

In the first significant domestic acquisition of the festival, Fox Searchlight has earned a timely boost to its awards season roster after acquiring US rights to Steve McQueen%E2%80%99s acclaimed drama ahead of the North American premiere on Sunday.

Shame received its world premiere in Venice and stars Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan in the portrait of a troubled sex addict. McQueen and Abi Morgan co-wrote the screenplay.

Tessa Ross, Robert Walak, Peter Hampden and Tim Haslam served as executive producers. HanWay Films is handling sales.

%E2%80%9CThis is a brave statement and an important move by Fox Searchlight,%E2%80%9D McQueen said. %E2%80%9CI am very happy they came on board to release Shame in the US. It%E2%80%99s great to be working with a team that is so passionate about cinema.%E2%80%9D

Fox Searchlight%E2%80%99s evp of worldwide acquisitions Tony Safford, svp of business affairs Megan O%E2%80%99Brien and vp of acquisitions Ray Strache brokered the deal with Thorsten Schumacher and Claire Taylor of HanWay Films.

Funny rant about "Shame" (lol)

I have received many private emails and some posts at Fassinating Fassbender inquiring about Michael’s performance in Shame and the situation regarding his PENIS. If you are the type of person who cannot tolerate seeing a man’s penis in a movie, don’t fucking go see Shame. If you fear that Michael’s penis is larger than your boyfriend’s junk, and he’s going to go with you, and his penis envy will destroy your relationship. Don’t fucking go see Shame. If you live on a planet where men should not show their penis, or use said body part, Don’t fucking go see Shame. If you cringe over simulated sex scenes of fully naked professional actors, Don’t fucking go see Shame. If you are a “huge fan” of Michael Fassbender, got his picture and several autographs of him, found him to be sweet, cute, happy, and funny, but then you saw Shame and were disgusted and don’t like him anymore. Fuck you!

There is a scene in X-Men First Class that I still can not believe made it in to the theatrical release. (If you're interested in seeing it: It's very short--Michael Fassbender, James Mcavoy, and Rose Byrne are walking down a hallway. They had just come out of a meeting where they got the ok from the government to fight mutants with mutants.) Michael's cock bulge is huge! I was watching it on an iPad. I can only imagine how obvious it was on the big screen!

Fassman Cometh: October 8th, 2011 at 6:59 pm I got to see Shame last night at NYFF and also stand about a foot or so away from Fassman before we all went in to check out the film. He looks even better all the way live, y’all. The bluest of the blue eyes, and yes, all them damn teeth (I would hate for him to bite me, oww, man!). Light ginger, grey suit, serious goofball at the Q+A. “I don’t see myself as that much of an exhibitionist,” he says (I’m paraphrasing) when asked about the nudity and sexy stuff in the film. Yeah, sure you’re not, Michael, lol!

As far as the film itself goes, there were parts of it I wanted to cry over, his performance was so heartwrenching. You just wanted to help Brandon out so badly. An amazing actor in him and director in McQueen. They need to do another one, though, and this time give Nicole B. more meat to chew on (though she was cool with what she had). At the same time, I have nothing but kudos for the Fassdong as it appears in the film sans clothing. One word? Boing-bounce, boing-bounce (okay, so that’s two words double-timed, I know, but that’s how it was, lol!) He’s also a rather furry flucker down there. I was almost afraid we wouldn’t see anything from all that fur, lol. But the Fassdong does not disappoint!! Love the scene of him taking a leak: hold it steady, stroke it a little, point it downwards and go…wooooo….! See it when it comes out in December. I think most in the know will dig it lots. Cheers!

However, I have heard good things about the movie. I don't find Fassbender particularly attractive but I do think he's a very good actor.

by Anonymousreply 5710/21/2011

His performance is raw and devastating. He and Mulligan both deserve Oscar nods. The film's brilliance is not explaining everything and instead showing, and leaving the viewer to draw his own inferences. There's no 12-step arc, no redemption, just a man in a downward spiral and the film suggests that his proverbial bottom (in recovery terms, ho's, not sexual position) is so deep and arguably not reached by the film's end. The film stayed with me long after it was over and Fassbender's performance was nothing short of amazing. His cock was impressive but the sex scenes are devoid of eros and filled much more with thanatos.

[italic]But the real question is this:[/italic]

Is Michael Fassbender the best the film's producers could get -- for the nudity?

by Anonymousreply 7610/28/2011

Possibly, R76. Not all actors have the courage to do full-frontal scenes - most with only show their butt. That means there are often only a small number of guys available to do it.

For example, Bernardo Bertolucci had trouble finding an American actor who would agree to do the cock scenes in "The Dreamers" in 2003. It was rumored that Jake Gyllenhaal was offered the part but turned it down when he found out what was involved. So Bertolucci had to find Michael Pitt instead.

by Anonymousreply 7710/28/2011

Michael Fassbender and director Steve McQueen have a long-standing working relationship and the filmw as Michael's before any producers became involved. They made it together. If his giant cock is swinging around it's because he wanted his giant cock swinging around.

"It's an English film, and in general there's lot's of nudity including full frontal from men in European films."

True. Definitely compared to American films. Although it is probably less common in English films compared to French, Italian, Spanish etc.

There are only a small number of big name English-speaking actors that I can think of who have done it: Ewan McGregor, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jude Law, etc.

[R82] look up the definition of 'mainstream film', because 'Shame' is far from being mainstream. Haven't you been reading the hoopla about it's NC17 rating and the limits that rating will pose (ie. very, very select theaters). The budget was less than $6 million.

Michael Fassbender was nude, and when you see it, you will understand. I guess he would be flattered if some people thought it was plastic. Silly people.

Some of the reviews for the film have been mixed (to put it kindly. I think the NYT review summarizes these critics best:

"Is “Shame” the name of something Brandon does feel, or of something the filmmakers think he should feel? The movie, for all its displays of honesty (which is to say nudity), is also curiously coy. It presents Brandon for our titillation, our disapproval and perhaps our envy, but denies him access to our sympathy. I know, that’s the point, that Mr. McQueen wants to show how the intensity of Brandon’s need shuts him off from real intimacy, but this seems to be a foregone conclusion, the result of an elegant experiment that was rigged from the start."

by Anonymousreply 11912/02/2011

Another interesting quote from the NYT review:

"The climax is, for Brandon, a chaotic downward slide that blends provocation with a scolding, breathless moralism. How far will he go? He’ll have sex with a man! With two women!"

Michael Fassbender Gay Bathhouse Scene

It doesn’t become about homosexuality or heterosexuality, it becomes about a fix, and where can I get my fix? People think, Wow, this is his descent into hell, and it’s not the case. I mean, we shot in a real club. That is a real scenario for many addicts that are predominantly heterosexual and they end up with a guy. You put yourself into a scenario that you wouldn’t do in a normal situation because your choice is gone.

The scene with him and the sister sitting on the couch was really good. It felt like going to see a really good play or something.

I love when a "small" film like this is really good - because there are so many shitty and poorly acted local films and such.

Question - is Brandon supposed to be sexually tempted by his sister's presence, and feeling disgusting and shameful for it? That is how i read it.

I feel like the gay scene was necessary to the film. If he was just banging the shit out of zillions of hot female hookers, I don't know if you would be left with the impression he's an addict. The way he randomly trolls into the gay bar desperately seeking sexual release is kind of useful in the context of the film.

And whoever said his rock bottom is with the two female hookers - not the gay club scene - is absolutely right.

Someone has posted an explicit review of his cock at the UK FM Forums:

"It's not an extreme close-up but it is the center of attention on screen - it's a shot of him walking from his bedroom to his kitchen, framed so you see from his navel down. They show it at least twice, (to show his routine), and on the last time he goes to the bathroom and pisses.

Uncut. Porn star big but there are bigger ones out there - I'd say a full 6" flaccid. Thicker than average but only a tad, it's the length that's impressive.

Hard to say if its veiny. The trouble is he doesn't stand still and the hall he walks through is dark in the middle. With his penis constantly swinging from the walking you don't get an idea of the colour or skin, just the size and way it moves. When the disc release comes out with the ability to pause, that's when we'll get a better idea.

It's the only glimpses of his cock in the film, the rest is masturbation (but shown from the waist up) or sex with lots of thrusting and ass shots but no cock.

The post pissing is the hottest bit. You can see a good 2-3 inches of cock through the gap in his legs and when he shakes off the last drops of piss he gives his cock a few good strokes. That got me aroused."

by Anonymousreply 18512/07/2011

R184 After seeing Shame myself, I would say that the feedback per R183 is pretty accurate re: what we saw, but I would say that the penis was at least a solid 9" flaccid... don't know if the 6" was a typo. Six inches is average and Fassbender ain't average.

by Anonymousreply 18612/07/2011

6 inches erect is average (or a little above). 6 inches flaccid, is not.

by Anonymousreply 18712/07/2011

No way was he 9 inches flaccid. Agree with 6 inches flaccid. Fairly healthy, bigger than most men who are 4 inches flaccid.

Honestly, his dick doesn't actually matter. Once the film starts going there is nothing sexy about the sexual compulsion of the character. Fassbender himself is sexy and goodlooking in real life but the character was pathetic. The film itself empty and shallow but Fassbender was able to rise above the material (no pun intendend) and give a riveting performance.

Good to hear that he is uncut (as we assumed since he is European).

by Anonymousreply 20112/10/2011

To address the topic of whether actors with big dicks are more likely to go naked, I think the answer is an obvious yes. I think if you know you are less likely to be made fun of naked, you are more likely to take your clothes off.

It's probably not a coincidence that the actor who has shown his cock in the most films is Ewan McGregor who just happens to have a big cock. If he was small, he would probably not be as brave in doing that. I think the same thing goes for Jonathan Rhys Meyers and several others.

Now of course there are some actors with small cocks who have gone naked (eg. DiCaprio, Radcliffe) but who get made fun of by the size queens. So I certainly think the size of the cock influences the decision to go naked.

Incidentally, in the movie '9 Songs' a few years ago that had real sex scenes and showed a lot of his cock, it's probably not a coincidence that director Michael Winterbottom chose Kieran O'Brien for the role, who just happens to have a big dick.

This allows for a better grip of said waist from behind.

No R208, R207 is on to something there.

Now that I have FINALLY watched Shame I know why Michael did not get an Oscar Nom.

Brandon's reason for "almost" kicking his habit was because of the possibility of a relationship with a wait for it...................


Fassbender was SUPERB! Steve McQueen picked the right man to do his "nth to the Power" long shots. Fassbender fills every single minute.

You can see his shifting thoughts. Even when he is banging those 2 pros, that last shot of the dawning of self-disgust is brilliant.

I really liked Hunger, and Fish Tank was very good, but Fassbender in Shame has reached new acting heights.

It just came out on DVD this week.

Just saw it. Fassbender is very good in a very depressing film. Yes, he is hot....face, body, cock and ass. In additin to the nude scenes showing his cock, the scene where he is in his underwear shows he has a lot of meat to huse in his boxer briefs. The scene where he is atop his sister on the sofa fighting has to be the most revealing male star ass crack shot in a "mainstream" film. You almost see his hairy hole. Brave of him to go all out in his nudity concerning the Victorian era mindset on male nudity in American films.

Anyway, his performance is wrenching as a very disturbed man adddicted to sex and nearly phobic about establishing close relationships.

What are the "bonus" features on the DVD?

Any "cut" scenes?

Any "extended" scenes?

Who does the commentary track - Michael Lucas or ChiChi La Rue?

He wasn't brave, he has a big dick and knows it. They would never have gotten an average sized actor to take that role. Unfortunately he has all but ruined his chance at being taken seriously as an actor now, he'll be forever identified by his cock.

Regardless of the size of his dick and him knowing that it's large, does not mean that it still wasn't difficult or embarrassing for Fassbender to be nude in this film. Maybe you're projecting [R263], (you must be an American male) but perhaps an 'average' actor could have very well portrayed Brandon. Especially when you consider that there is so few examples of male frontal nudity - in fact, those that exist are of 'average' sized men.

Everyone isn't a size queen. There's more to Shame than the size of Fassbender's cock!

And he does have a huge career ahead of him.

R263 I agree that it wasn't particularly brave of him to go naked. Taking the role may have been brave considering the subject matter and all of the things he had to act out but he is no doubt proud of his dick and happy to show it off. Why wouldn't he be? If he was small then it would have been brave to go full frontal. Anyway I'm happy he did and I don't think it will harm his career a bit.

Damn, how long am I suppose to look at his swinging dick, before something actually happens?

The character made me hate Carrie Mulligan...I never want to see her in anything again.

I felt the same way about Michelle Williams, I can't stand her because of her character on Dawson's Creek.
