Shame was so depressing omg. I just wanna go curl up in a corner and cry.
This was the opening image for Shame. It was quite a long take, but I think McQueen did it perfectly to describe Brandon’s character. We assume that he’s just had sex, but there is no look of happiness in his face at all. Instead, you get a feeling of his self-loathing. He looks up into the ceiling - a vacant look. He is empty. The sheets are such a vivid blue, yet Brandon pales in comparison. In what should be an act of pleasure, Brandon lacks it. This was the perfect image to invite spectators into Brandon’s world of his desctructive sex addiction.
