Addiction is a tricky subject. An addict isn’t someone who uses something to get a sense of euphoria, but rather an addict is someone who uses something to seek out the pleasure they once experienced but have since abused to the point where no euphoria can be found. It’s a pointless pursuit, but if you attempt to explain that to an addict they will not be able to understand. There is still the belief that it can be found. Shame is a movie that revolves around sex addiction and one man’s gritty, self acknowledged dirty obsession.
