    Steve McQueen's "Shame" continues to dominate much of the awards talk this fall, but the question is whether or not the stuffier members of the Academy will give the movie a fair shake. While dark and unrelenting, it's also a powerful character study, a portrait of a man's desi...

    After seeing the searing, powerful "Shame," the first thing on your mind likely won't be to pick up the soundtrack to the movie. This isn't "Juno" or "(500) Days of Summer" we're talking about here. But that said, music does play a key part in establishing t...

    In Case You Had Any Doubt, 'Shame' Is Officially Rated NC-17

    Ever since the film first unspooled at the Venice Film Festival, the big question surrounding Steve McQueen's "Shame" was who would decide to take on the risky, explicit film about sex addiction that due to its graphic content was headed for an NC-17 rating.
