The things they say....Hunger

The real power in this movie however lies in the performance of Michael Fassbender. Political stance aside Fassbender's performance is breath taking

Michael Fassbender, who was also good in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, gives a phenomenal performance as Sands. We have seen many actors gain and lose weight for a role but few have given a performance so powerful that you actually forget you are watching an actor.

Fassbender (you may remember him as a British film critic in Inglourious Basterds) gives a wonderful performance which he was clearly dedicated to in body and soul: Near the end of the film is body is so rail thin that he must have lost an extraordinary (and very unhealthy) amount of weight for the role. He's got star-power written all over him, but hopefully in the future he'll be able to find great roles he doesn't have to starve himself for.

Few actors are allowed the chance to shine in a good role, even few are allowed the chance to shine in a role that demands every single bit of emotional and physical range that they have, and if they succeed is a completely different story. Fassbender does harrowing work as he pushed himself to the physical limits. Fassbender’s work with Liam Cunningham as Father Moran is electric. The fifteen minute scene between the two men is funny, intelligent and ultimately heartbreaking. Watching both men volley back and forth between personal, political and religious convictions is simple but magnetic.

McQueen also gets incredible work out of his actors, starting with Michael Fassbender as Bobby Sands. From the physical endurance of the role to the expressing the man’s mind through words, Fassbender is remarkable and lets hope between this and Inglourious Basterds that he is on his way to bigger things. Liam Cunningham also deserves notice for going toe to toe with Fassbender in an absolutely amazing display of acting in a single take sequence of dialogue between Sands and a priest (Cunningham). The two seem so natural and speak so eloquently, it is a real marvel to watch, even if it might have carried on a tad to long. The rest of the cast is almost courageous as Fassbender working with some disturbing and intense material and conveying so much with so little dialogue, there is nary a weak link in the group.

Featuring an intense performance by Michael Fassbender, Hunger is an unflinching, transcendent depiction of what a human being is willing to endure to be heard.

Hunger treads a very careful political line throughout its running time, and what emerges is a surprisingly open drama, powered by an excellent performance from Michael Fassbender as Bobby Sands. As Sands embarks on his infamous hunger strike, Fassbender mesmerises in the role, leading up to the aforementioned, gripping, single conversation that’s the highlight of the film. Mark him down as a major talent to watch. Alongside Fassbender, director Steve McQueen does really quite sterling work with Hunger.

Auteur Steve McQueen Goes For Fela Biopic Next I'm still not certain whether last year's Hunger was so remarkable because of the direction from artist Steve McQueen, or simply because McQueen occasionally got out of the way and let Michael Fassbender's magnetic performance take over.

Michael Fassbender is great as Bobby Sands, with the 20-minute-long colloquy with Liam Cunningham that lies at the centre of the film a masterclass in dramatic writing.

Also quite amazing is Steve McQueen's IRA hunger-strike drama, "Hunger" featuring an amazing performance by Michael Fassbender.

Some of the strongest acting to come out of a film in a long time from lead actor Michael Fassbender.

The film switches gears as one of the men we have followed sits with a priest and have a 20+ minute discussion about what it would mean to go on a hunger strike. From here we follow Bobby Sands as he stops eating. This is a film about a political moment and sans the ending title cards it achieves the urgency of the specific moment of Bobby Sands. Part of this is no doubt due to Michael Fassbender's performance as Bobby Sands. When we meet him, he is tough and determined. When we leave him, he is a skeleton but nonetheless determined. His eyes speak volumes and the 20 minutes scene between he and Sands' priest is something to be celebrated.

A very good performance from Michael Fassbender as IRA hunger-striker Bobby Sands in a movie that was an ordeal to sit through.

Consider This: Michael Fassbender in "Hunger"

IFC is opening Steve McQueen's hard hitting Hunger this Friday for an exclusive, one week only Academy qualifying run. But the official release date isn't until March of next year.

Now usually this is the Academy equivalent of suicide, squeezing a small film in at the last minute does it no favors. It will go un-nominated and overlooked, and cause confusion as to what year to truly identify it with. But I want to start some buzz anyway.

Not that I have that much influence on things, but Michael Fassbender's performance is nothing short of extraordinary. He does so much with so little. His character doesn't appear until halfway through the film, but he quickly becomes its core, and the focus of its title. I have never seen the wasting away of another human being on screen so shockingly potent and believable. It's absolutely stunning work, but it has zero buzz. Which means it pretty much has zero chance, not against the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Mickey Rourke, and Sean Penn. IFC hasn't even mounted an FYC campaign for it yet.

But he deserves it. Boy does he ever. It's a wrenching film, and probably too off-putting for the Academy, which also hurts his chances. It's a tough sit - a rough, graphic, take no prisoners look at the lives of IRA prisoners in Britain during the 1980s, who stage a hunger strike to gain political recognition.

It's an excellent film, a stunning debut by first time director Steve McQueen, who has coaxed a performance out of Fassbender that is utterly compelling and deserving of far more awards attention than he is getting.

Everything builds off of Michael Fassbender’s haunting physical performance, both before his body transforms into a riddled mesh of bones and sores, and certainly after. There’s really only one major dialogue scene in the film, and it’s a 16 minute stunner between Sands and Father Dominic Moran (Liam Cunningham) shot in one static long take.

Michael Fassbender is elevated as Bobby Sands, with the 20-minute-long colloquy with Liam Cunningham that lies at the converge of the impressive impression a masterclass in singular critique.

The film pulls no punches in portraying the horrific nature of the protests, with a compelling performance from Michael Fassbender as the doomed Bobby Sands.

Michael Fassbender is just outstanding as Bobby Sands , as is Liam Cunningham as the priest. It is the exchange between these two characters half way through the film which seems to bind the film together.

It is the conversation between Fassbender and Cunningham which gives us the political and moral arguments; real humanity expressed over life's worth, political and religious values and hopes for the future and memories of the past.
