The word out of the festival circuit is that director Steve McQueen’s Shame is an absolutely devastating film, a stunner through and through. The trailers have certainly been quite impressive, and the film looks like a dark, seductive but also unflinching and painful look at sexual addiction. It stars Obsessive Crazypants Joanna’s wannabe boytoy Pajiba favorite Michael Fassbender, who I quite like, though not with the rabidness of others. Regardless, this is supposed to be a film where he truly shines.

The newest, red-band trailer is a gorgeous 90 seconds of subtlety, sensuality with a hint of obsessive craziness. Take a look:

I can’t help but think of this song, though.

I mean that in the best possible way.
