SLIFF- Steve McQueen’s “Shame”

The St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF) just began a few days ago, and already a handful of films from all over the world were screened at Tivoli (Loop), Plaza Frontenac, WashU, Webster, and other locations. Yesterday I went to see Steve McQueen’s new film Shame that’s due for release the first week of December. McQueen, a renowned UK-based media artist who generated buzz a few years ago winning the prestigious Turner Prize in the arts, is also active in film-making. His previous film Hunger, a depiction of Bobby Sands during the 1981 Irish Hunger Strike, catapulted both McQueen and actor Michael Fassbender into spotlight, for good reasons.
