A dev­as­tat­ing por­trait of male sex ad­dic­tion, fea­tur­ing an in­cred­i­ble lead per­for­mance from the great Bri­tish ac­tor Michael Fass­ben­der ( Jane Eyre, Fish Tank). He plays Bran­don, an up­wardly mo­bile New Yorker be­ing slowly driven crazy by urges he can no longer con­trol. The im­pact on his abil­ity to form re­la­tion­ships, per­form his job and even hold a sin­gle clean thought in his head is ren­dered clearly and pow­er­fully through­out. A se­ri­ous, le­git­i­mately provoca­tive work. Di­rected by Steve McQueen ( 12 Years a Slave). Co- stars Carey Mul­li­gan.
