Above is the absolutely ravishing new poster for Steve McQueen’s Shame. Reviews out of New York, Toronto and Telluride have built upon the momentum gathered way back in Venice. The buzz makes this one of the most anticipated films of the year, and the same can be said for Fassbender’s performance. Will he become the Bardem of 2011? Can Fox Searchlight’s campaign wizards strike a fire under this work, and get it into more Academy categories despite its testy NC-17 rating? Only time will tell.
