Films about sex are often too easy or too arty. Steve McQueen's "Shame" is neither. It convinces through clever pace, grimy-glamourous NY esthetics, and open-ended tension.

You also get to see Michael Fassbender naked, which is slightly reminiscent of Christian Bale in American Psycho, but more gratuitous (in a good way).

 "Shame" (2011) Trailer

The soundtrack isn't bad either.

Blondie, "Rapture" (1980)

Chet Baker, "Let's get lost"(1956)

Prelude & Fugue No. 10 in E minor, BWV 855 (J.S. Bach) Glenn Gould

Carey Mulligan, "New York New York"
