One of the most difficult movies that I ever had to sit through. This is a masterfully acted movie about sexual addiction and lonelyness. Fassbender gives it his all in this movie, and i have more admiration for him as an actor because of it.
This movie had me looking away from the screen and it was not because of the nudity, but because it is so raw and awkward at times that i felt weird looking at it. This to me shows how perfectly executed this film was, both behind the camera and in front of it. Once during the film I actually found myself feeling bad for the main character while he was in the middle of a threesome. That took my by surprise, the fact that I would feel pity towards someone having sex with two women astounded me.
Carey Mulligan gives a strong performance here too, but you wont even notice her when Fassbender is onscreen. He comands your attention everytime he is present, which is 99% of the movie. The ending kind of left it open for interpretation, but I like it better that way.
The only thing that stops me from giving this film a 10 out of 10, is the fact that I don't think that I could sit through it again. Lastly I think that Fassbender should go to Jean Dujardin's house and demand the Oscar that is rightfully his. It is a travesty what the Oscars did to him.
Good Fucking Movie!
