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

A very good movie

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

Consumed with artistic ugliness and teeth-grindingly nasty realism, "Hunger" is the first film by up-and-coming director Steve McQueen, nut to be confused with the "The Great Escape" man. No. This Steve McQueen is big, black, and British, and knows more about European prisons in the 80's than any man should be comfortable knowing.

The setting is 1981 Ireland, and the film follow... read more

too Painful to Watch.

“Hunger was the debut full-length movie for Steve McQueen, and it is one of those movies where you have to watch it because it's a debut for a promising director, but it just burnt into my mind, to be honest i wish that i haven't seen it, it was too painful to watch.

It tells the story of Bobby Sands, an IRA (Irish Republican Army) member, who were imprisoned in HM Prison Maze, and was leading the prison into a hunger strike demanding the Special Category Status, which is a status in which he should be treated as a political prisoner not as a criminal and should not be wearing a prison costume.

The movie starts silently for long time, with no dialog, just capturing the suffering and the violence inside the prison, how the prisoners were treated and how they exchange mess” read more

"Steve McQueenin mielenkiintoinen elokuva Bobby Sandsista, joka aloittaa nälkälakon vankilassa. Fassbender kantaa elokuvaa. "

"12.4. Varhaisempaa McQueenia. Tähän elokuvaan ei ole eksynyt tyylirikkoja. Erittäin tehokas kuvaus yhteiskunnallisten ryhmien vastakkainasettelusta äärimmillään, siitä miten sen kärjistyminen lopulta johtaa vain sopeutumattomien yksilöiden tuhoutumiseen. Fassbenderin ja Cunninghamin rupatteluhetki on unohtumaton."

"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"

"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"
