cock and bull story: a bumpy ride

"Cock and bull story" is James Quandt's review of Steve McQueen's new film Shame in the January 2012 issue of Artforum.

The review starts:
"The martyrology of Steve McQueen's Hunger (2008) and his new film, Shame, is founded on the male body, stripped and in extremis."

The review ends:
"McQueen has made a passion play to gladden Michele Bachmann's heart."
