Review by Jude Felton
The first movie I saw that starred Michael Fassbender was the 2008 flick Eden Lake, which was an incredibly brutal and downbeat movie about a couple who head out to the country for a quiet weekend. Of course it doesn’t turn out quite as they planned. Since then I have seen a few movies in which Fassbender has starred, most recently being A Dangerous Method, but none of them, regardless of how good they were, have contained the power that Shame has. More to the point, this is the first movie in which I would say that Fassbender stars, in the true sense of the word. Shame is his movie.
The Divide (2011)
Review by Jude Felton
So often the end of the world, however it happens, is romanticized in movies. It’s not always the case, although apparently survivors will all band together and make the most of a bad situation. In many regards I am reminded of the classic movie The Great Escape; prisoners living in what looks to be almost a holiday camp, whereas the reality of the situation would have no doubt been a lot more uncomfortable. Would the end of the world be any different? Would everyone join up and make the best of it? Xavier Gens doesn’t think so, and neither do I.
