Fassbender As Sex Addict

In the second of his collaborations with actor de jour Michael Fassbender, director Steve McQueen couldn't have chosen a more different subject matter. Whilst their first film together dealt with the Troubles in Ireland and the emotive subject of hunger striking prisoners, this deals instead with sex addiction and life in the big city.

Fassbender's ridiculously titled character Gothamite Brandon, is an extreme sex addict who is finding it increasingly difficult to hide his predicliction for all things carnal, especially in light of the fact his sister (Carey Mulligan) has come to stay with him for an indefinite period of time.

It's been a big hit on the festival circuit and has garnered much critical acclaim for the actors and director alike. For those who may be interested, there are by all accounts, many shots of Fassbender's unmentionables. Watch the trailer below.
