First Showing.net’s Alex Billington posted a first-anywhere trailer for Steve McQueen‘s Hunger (IFC, sometime in ’09) earlier today. You can tell in an instant that McQueen is a first-rate visual composer. The art of Hunger is not open to question. What is open to question (to nausea-prone middle-class guys like myself who have problems with the idea of being stuck in small prison cells with fecal matter smeared on the walls) is whether or not you want to sit and meditate and tough it out with some IRA guys in a British-run prison for the better part of two hours. Otherwise Hunger is the shit. Photographically, I mean.
