This is a 2011 British film co-written and directed by Steve McQueen, starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan.
The film's explicit sexual scenes are like an adult movie.
Altough the director might have been trying to depict the traumatic experiences of the brother and his younger wayward sister, the film seems to be a total flop because it doesn't show any meaningful and understandable scenes.
The director doesn't seem to know how to make a movie.
What a shame! :-)
It was a complete waste of my time.

A sad and depressing commentary on our sex-obsessed culture pushed to its logical extreme. I found it hard to watch such a display of relentless self-destruction. Good acting, intelligent script. A movie about sex which is completely lacking in eroticism.

Michael Fassbender is a martyr to his sexual urges for 101 minutes of your time. There is a germ of something important here, but nothing develops. You will know all there is to know about the characters in the first quarter hour.

I had no idea about the topic of this movie when I grabbed it off of the shelf. I also didn't realize it was NC-17 when I borrowed it, but that didn't take long to figure.

It's a sad, and well produced movie about sex addiction. Implied cycle of depression due to sexual abuse.

Big budget, beautiful cinematography, but may be too edgy and graphic for many.

A stark yet glossy look at the emptiness and frustrations of sex addiction.

A very well told story about sex addiction. The conflicts between siblings and an independent life in a modern city are very realistically portrayed.

I can't imagine any other director telling this presumably boring addiction in any more dynamic way.

Well done, Steve McQueen the director.

Currently the ABSOLUTE BEST movie i have seen all year. Hands down. It's NC17 with very good reason. Yes the scenes are graphic but moreso the content, the real meat of the plot I believe would be lost on anyone so young. The .. EVERYTHING is perfect. It is full of nothing but pain so if you think you're gonna get your jollies by watching it... you are overwhelmingly mistaken.

I didn't think sex could be this borrrring! If it weren't for the cinematography and soundtrack, I'd give it a minus 5.

Don't waste your time with this one, it's not worth it. It's just a pointless jumbled mess.

Steve McQueen wrote it and directed it.
Shame on him for such a well filmed piece of garbage. However, it does make "real" pornographic films look good.
After you see Fassbender's naked body ... the film goes down hill to the dregs.
Shame on me for wasting time watching it.
