Steve McQueen fest on The Agitation of the Mind

By which I mean this Steve McQueen …

… not this Steve McQueen* …

… and by “fest” I mean the three features he’s directed so far. Over the next few days, I’ll be looking at the unflinching depictions of human behaviour on offer in ‘Hunger’, ‘Shame’ and ‘12 Years a Slave’. There will be intensity, there will be unexpected moments of beauty, there will be adult themes, and there will be Michael Fassbender.

There will be a lot of Michael Fassbender.

*Although a that Steve McQueen retrospective is something I need to do on this blog before much longer.
