One of the fall festival season's most anticipated pictures, at least in our eyes, is British artist-turned-filmmaker Steve McQueen's New York-set portrait of sexual addiction in "Shame" starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan.
Our own Oli Lyttelton's excellent Venice coverage only heightened our excitement for the director's follow-up to "Hunger" (2008) with his review praising, in particular, the "tour-de-force performance" by Fassbender and the exhibition of "absolute control and discipline shown by McQueen throughout." Excited yet?
Fellow indieWire bloggers Shadow And Act have uncovered a slew of new photos and the first clip from McQueen's film to torture those of us unable to attend one of the major fall fests. The film, which also features James Badge Dale and Nicole Beharie, has already premiered at Venice and Telluride to generally positive reviews and its next stop is the Toronto International Film Festival. The rest of the photos and the clip (which starts at 2:30 after highlights from the Venice press conference) are after the jump.
