Astounding visual masterpiece...

"There is no such thing as political murder, political bombing or political violence. There is only criminal murder, criminal bombing and criminal violence."

Nominally, Hunger is a motion picture about the life of IRA activist Bobby Sands who died in 1981 as the result of a hunger strike. But this startling feature film debut of British visual artist Steve McQueen (no relation to th... read more

The war between the British government and the IRA was at the end of the 70's pretty ruthless and this movie shows how far both sides would go to reach their goals. It is indeed a merciless movie which doesn't take sides but neutrally displays all the facts. For a directing début, I thought it was pretty impressive. You can see that McQueen was originally an artist as, in the midst of the horror ... read more

Getting ready for the upcoming 12 Years a Slave, I thought I'd check out McQueen's first film, Hunger. I just watched Shame last night and was absolutely blown away, so I had pretty high expectations for this film, and it did meet most of them. It has to be one of the most disheartening, distressing and I dare say disturbing film experiences I've ever had, even, in many ways, rivaling the emotions... read more

"19.2 Vautsi vau. Viimeinkin pääsin kädet syyhyten McQueenin ohjausten kimppuun. Vahva debyytti antaa odotuksia myös miehen kahta muuta elokuvaa kohtaan tulevaisuudesta nyt puhumattakaan. Huikean Fassbenderin roolisuorituksen lisäksi tässä on yli vartin kestävä keskustelutuokio, jonka vai toivoisi ja toivoisi jatkuvan pitempään. "

"Telling the tale of IRA prisoner Bobby Sands' last 6 weeks in the Maze prison whilst he was on hunger strike before his death, this is an uncomprimising, bleak and powerful tale of what went on behind bars. The conditions revealed in the prison are deeply disturbing, with the inmates fouling the jail with their own shit and the guards responding with ritual humiliation and savage beatings. Director Steve McQueen does not hold back in showing the viewer the squalor and cruelty that took place. Mi"

2013 Yılının En İyi Filmleri (39 movies items)

"IRA ile ilişkilendirilmiş bu filmde, Bobby Sands’in insanlık dışı muamelelere maruz kalışı sert bir dille ele alınıyor. Mahkumların battaniye ve yıkanmama eylemleriyle ilerleyen direnişleri, altı hafta süren açlık grevi ile doruğa çıkıyor. Hayatı mücadele ile geçmiş Sands’ın kendi vücudunu yaşamının son savaş alanı olarak addedmesiyle yaşanan dramatik süreç muazzam bir etkileyicilikle gözler önüne seriliyor. En az hapishane mahkumları için olduğu kad"

"Bobby Sands diye bir adam var, film bu adamın hapishanede yaşadıklarını, gördüğü insanlık dışı muameleleri anlatıyor. Aslında ancak bu kadar gereksiz bir özet yazabilirdim diye düşündüm kendi kendime çünkü film bundan çok çok daha öte. Şöyle bir durum var ki, herkesin beğeneceği tarzda bir film değil. Çok ağır ilerliyor ve yer yer neredeyse hiç bir diyalog yok. Ağır sahneler, yakın çekimler. Bunların yanında filmde hiç müzik kullanmayarak inanılmaz bi"

"Hunger on vavahduttava teos. Se kertoo Ison-Britannian protestanttien ja Irlannin katolilaisen IRA:n ongelmista, joka on lähihistorian tunnetuimpia aiheita. Vielä enemmän Hunger on kertomus henkilöistä aidan molemmin puolin. Steve McQueen kuljettaa tapahtumia monen eri hahmon silmin, niin brittiläisen vanginvartijan, kahden IRA:n vapaustaistelijan ja kuin itse päähenkilöksi muodostuvan Bobby Sandsinkin (Michael Fassbender). Sands on aloittanut peseytymislakon ja siisteyslakon vankilassa"

Such a great film. Check out McQueen's Shame if you liked this one; in my opinion, it's even better. I'm also going to watch 12 Years a Slave this weekend, and it better be good!

It has to be one of the most disheartening, distressing and I dare say disturbing film experiences I've ever had, even, in many ways, rivaling the emotions I felt in such films as Salo or Antichrist, except this was much more subtle and used pure visceral effect to seep its way into my head. The visuals were outstanding; they were, just like Shame, simply breathtaking, but, again like Shame, I can't put my finger on why they were so amazing, but I could tell that this was a mostly visually-driven film; the story and characters were pretty minimal, a” read more
