Extremely powerful movie about the Northern Ireland conflict.
Every single scene is a punch to the stomach amazingly filmed that leaves you thinking.
So disturbing and brutal yet so powerfully beautiful.
In Michael Fassbender's performance we can feel the dedication that he putted in his role, so intense and so powerful. Michael Fassbender you are amazing!
The way Hunger is shooted is so great turning the storytelling of the events even more darker and intense.
Steve McQueen made a stunning piece of art.
This impressively constructed debut feature shows the last six weeks in the life of Irish republican hunger striker Bobby Sands. With the level of skill that it took to make this movie, its honestly hard to believe its Steve McQueen's first. I mean the movie features an ideological debate between two characters that goes on for 23 minutes. 17 and a half of those minutes being all in one record breaking shot. That's insane! It is very different so I wouldn't recommend it to everyone but if you're quite fond of the criterion collection then you're probably going to like this movie.
Raw, dirty and violent, the film sheds light on the situation of IRA members in 1981 mercilessly. A plan sequence of more than 10 minutes emphasizes the performance above the average of Fassbender.
