Aroview: The virtuoso director of HUNGER tackles the ills of sex addiction in this arresting portrait of a white collar New Yorker whose private shame is brought into the open by the unexpected arrival of his sister.
Confronting subject matter aside, McQueen’s film arguably lacks psychological and emotional intelligence necessary to ring true, or at the very least, support the fearlessness of its performers, whose behaviours and responses more often than not come across as calculated rather than authentic. We hasten to add that for all its heavyweight clout, this is far from daring in its exploration of sex addiction, and is more likely to humour or even patronize its audience when it comes to the desperation of its central character and affliction.
