2012 in Film: #87

Hunger (2008) | Directed by Steve McQueen

Grade: B+

Thoughts: Disturbing and contemplative, with each moving frame a thing of beauty or a thing of fear. Michael Fassbender gives a terrific performance. However, if you are unfamiliar with the historical context of the film, some of the emotion might be lost on you, and thus won’t ring as resonant.
