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

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

Description: HUNGER is the stunningly assured debut feature from Turner Prize-winning visual artist Steve McQueen. Winner of the 2008 Cannes Camera d’Or among other top international prizes, the film is a work of astonishing precision co-written by acclaimed Irish playwright Enda Walsh and starring Michael Fassbender (300, Tarantino’s upcoming INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS) in an unflinchingly passionate turn. HUNGER was an official selection of the Toronto, Telluride and New York film festivals. In 1981, a deadly serious battle takes place in the infamous H-block of Belfast’s Maze Prison. Republican inmates, led by Bobby Sands (Fassbender), re ... (more)

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2012 (50 movies items)

"THE DARK SIDE Michael Fassbender In Hunger, Steve McQueen’s elliptical, brutal, and utterly devastating 2008 film about the martyring of Irishman Bobby Sands (among others) to the cause of republicanism in 1981, Michael Fassbender turns in one of recent cinema’s most astounding performances. Playing (but one wants to say inhabiting) one of the most famous figures in the long and bloody history of the Troubles, Fassbender breathes into Sands an emotional sensitivity, a wiry electricity, and "
