So Jeff posted on twitter today about the weather in New York: https://twitter.com/jeffgerstmann/status/400237020897091584

For some reason I happened across this movie from 2011 called Shame, where apparently there was this sex scene (nothing nasty is visible): http://i.imgur.com/97rRVZe.jpg

It looks like the same place, their rooms doesn't look that far apart judging by the outside viewing angle.

Completely pointless of course, just thought it was a funny little coincidence.

I was actually going to say something in the comments, but I had to go to class. I thought, "that looks like the same area where Fassbender had sex with a prostitue in a hotel in that one film."

EDIT: Also, if it weren't for @alex's review of that film, I probably wouldn't have seen it (or knew about it). Great film.

Probably. Seems like Giant Bomb as a knack for getting to places like that unintentionally.

#4 Edited by ShaggE (6472 posts) -

I think it's safe to say that Jeff is ALWAYS at a sex scene filming location. And if he isn't, he makes it one.

Well, this is great.

Wouldn't be the first time.

Definitely not the same room, probably not the same building.

Also, I didn't like Shame at all. Just such a pointless movie. Even more pointless than Black Swan.

Ha! Yeah, the view from the window looks the same.

Should we warn the bomb squad and tell them to take a hot shower or roll around in some hand sanitizer for safety?

Someone send out an email to the bombcast so we can get some reactions!

Yeah it looks like that was filmed in that building you can see in Jeff's hotel shot. Since it's closer to that blue building.

Shame is a super good character study kind of movie, btw.

Michael Fassboner?

I don't think so, I think it just looks like it's closer because the camera is further back and your eyes are playing tricks with your brain.

Besides, if it had been the other building in Jeff's shot, the blue building would've been shown in a different angle.

Weird that I was just thinking about this movie today for no apparent reason.

#14 Posted by l4wd0g (1957 posts) -

Wil Wheaton's Table Top is also a location where porn has been filmed

#15 Posted by TheHT (11362 posts) -

Yeah that's totally the same building. Or at least the same area.

#16 Posted by RoyaleWifCheese (551 posts) -

I'm not very familiar with New York hotels, but I think that one in particular is famous for people having sex in front of the big windows. I'm also quite sure lots of people have had sex in that very room that Jeff was in.

Shame was one of my absolute favorite films from 2011, though. Some of Steve McQueen's best work (and I say that as someone who's seen 12 Years a Slave, which was still amazing).

I thought this thread was deleted. When I first went to it, it gave a 404.

#18 Posted by Oldirtybearon (4824 posts) -

I'm picturing Gerstmann as Fassbender's character in Shame and the thought makes the film infinitely more entertaining.

Seriously, give it a try.

I got really confused for a second and had to check and make sure the real Steve McQueen was dead.

#20 Posted by ArcadeHero (73 posts) -

I don't know if they said what hotel it was, but it looks like the Standard, High Line. That's definitely a picture of the West Side Highway.

Once we have our Xbox Ones, we can all claim to have been at a sex scene filming location.

#23 Edited by notdavid (839 posts) -

Again?

#24 Edited by djou (875 posts) -

I live in NYC and the Standard has a reputation for exhibitionist patrons. I was riding my bike home the other day and there was some dude just letting it all hang out by the windows. Not sure if he thought people could see him but... people could totally see him. There have been many times I've walked by the hotel at night to see a bunch of women posing half naked by the windows with blinding flashbulbs firing off in the background.

So, to the OP, yes this was probably a porn set at some point. It was definitely a place people pushed their naked bodies against the windows and got sticky.

Theres always a sex scene being filmed whenever Jeff shows up. If you catch my meaning

Yes, Sony held its event at the hotel where that bit of Shame was shot.

By extension, that's also a slight against American Psycho (as well as other great films), so now you're a double monster. You double monster. Doubster.

So a movie that showcases emotion and character more than story is automatically pointless? I don't see eye to eye with you. I was just trying to make a dumb and funny comment originally. Different strokes, I guess.

Lack of story and development for me is hard to enjoy unless it's a "fun" type of movie. Sad movies, with no progression, and in this case, a twist that makes it just feel like a regression, feel pointless to me.

@shagge: View the above response. I've enjoyed movies with unstable characters.

#34 Edited by GaspoweR (3064 posts) -

Btw, how does Adam Boyes feel about this one detail @jeff? Earlier this year you were in a set where hardcore pornography was shot and now you happen to be in the hotel where a film was being shot with a big name actor showing off his man parts and a video game mega-corporation held their press event for their big console launch. 0_o Was this fate? Serendipity?

I bet there's a sign in the lobby that says that. "Yes, this is the hotel where that bit of Shame was shot."

Michael Fassbender's penis was shot on location here.

So have people fucked on camera everywhere or is the GB crew just lucky that way?

Completely off topic, but how are either of those movies more pointless then any other movie?

EDIT: NVM! Others already asked. You are a monster.

It's a character study and performance movie first and foremost. Not all movies have to rely on a progression of narrative to be effective.

@aegon: I'm just giving you a hard time, duder. Black Swan is one of those divisive films where I think both sides are equally sound. I loved it, but I can totally see why somebody wouldn't.

They don't, true, but Shame was boring as shit. I get why a narrative about a person who is so afraid of genuine intimacy and buries that insecurity in pussy can be alluring. I get that being so utterly numb that a character lashes out in emotionally destructive ways sounds good. The problem with Shame is that it's so frankly shot, with such minimal characterization, that it falls well short of its goals. It's pretentious.

The funniest thing about Shame to me is that it's Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb, only boring and nowhere near as well written. That song summed up in six and a half minutes what Shame tried to say in two hours.

These two posts kind of cancel each other out. The only thing surprising about this is that the sex scene wasn't from a porno.

@aegon: You better shut your whore mouth, those are some great movies. Don't you dare have a different opinion than me!... Ah well, different strokes I guess.

GB likes em porn locations.

You are history's greatest monster, Shame and Black Swan are fantastic movies. They're not even really comparable though, Black Swan was more psychological thriller whereas Shame was more of a character study. Do you also dislike movies that have ambiguous endings?
