Shame Featurette

"There's a battle going on, an individual battle." Fox Searchlight recently posted a new featurette online (via Awards Daily) for Steve McQueen's Shame, which is currently playing in limited release with an NC-17 rating. Michael Fassbender stars in the film and appears in this featurette, along with writer & director Steve McQueen and co-star Carey Mulligan. The editing in this video, with the music in the background and everything, is what makes it particularly impressive for a featurette. It also happens that this is still one of my favorite films of the year and it's topping lists like Roger Ebert's Best of 2011 as well. Worth seeing!

Watch the new story featurette for Steve McQueen's Shame, originally via Awards Daily:

Shame is directed by Steve McQueen, who also wrote the script with Abi Morgan. The controversial and sexual drama stars Michael Fassbender as a 30-something living in New York City who can't control his sex life and sexual desire, and things get thrown out of whack when his "fragile" sister, played by Carey Mulligan, moves into his apartment. Fox Searchlight states: "Steve McQueen's courageous exploration of modern life's extremes is breathtaking. He has crafted an extraordinary film that probes some of the deepest and darkest issues ever portrayed on screen." Fox Searchlight opened Shame limited on December 2nd.

I've followed this film for awhile due to the praise it receives, but I still have no clue what it's premise is.  I think that not fitting into a certain mold though will make the characters more relatable when I get to hear the story without being biased toward the subject from the beginning.
