05.22.14Netflix It's kind of coincidental that I watched this right after Don Jon. Maybe not I don't know. This was really heavy. I respect McQueen's skill at eliciting performances especially during these long takes, but it's hard not to slow the pacing of the movie down once you throw more than one or two of those in your movie. I can also respect how all the naked people are exceedingly good looking in this movie although I suspect it kind of works against the intent since maybe the whole first half of the film ends up being kind of titillating rather than concerning or dramatic. Plus there's still the large part of my brain that insists that sex addiction is just for women and good looking men and that this movie would've been really different had it starred Paul Giamatti rather than Michael Fassbender. But still, this was an obviously high quality movie that I'll be in no hurry to see again. At this point I feel like I have Hunger on my queue for homework... but even though I am not singing to the hills on this one, I definitely recognize the personality and depth of performance in both this and 12 Years a Slave. It's a really good movie. Just left me cold is all.
