Dutch? The director Steve McQueen is from London.

I liked Shame, but I didn't think it was a great movie. It was ambitious and I liked the way some things were directed, but it was atmospheric and a bit short on drama or convention drama. Michael Fassbender was great in it and it had a lot of long shots/scenes that allowed him to stretch as actor. It was more of a character study than a robust story.

After hearing great reviews for Once a Slave, I could see him really doing well with this material that is obviously loaded with drama.

he let the actors emotions and body language do the talking.

this is where all the acting talent shone so brightly.

despite it's length, this movie doesn't drown in dialogue. the story was told through their expressions and reactions.
