They all seemed the same to me. Maybe that's the point, but it made for a difficult viewing.
Thought it was a really good slow burn mystery thriller personally. I had to watch it twice to fully understand what the fuck happened though. Everyone in it put in some great performances. I agree that the characters weren't very likeable all in all, but I wouldn't say I didn't care for them. I enjoyed the twists and turns the movie took towards the end too. I still feel like I need to re-watch it though.

Shame was A LOT more explicit than I was expecting, the UK certificate rating is a lot different to the US so films that are rated R and NC17 in the US fall under the "18" bracket here. Fassbender was brilliant, as he always is. Carey Mulligan was great aswell, she also got nude in it which I wasn't expecting.
Moonrise was a cute little film with a great cast, would definitely recommend if you haven't seen it already.
I really liked Moonrise Kingdom, but Shame left me mostly cold, it had moments of greatness though, especially the end which was brilliant. I just didn't really have any sympathy for the guy at all, and I'm pretty sure the intention was to feel sorry for him, especially when he breaks down towards the end which just felt forced to me, even though Fassbender was brilliant throughout. Mulligans character was the best in the film imo, and the best scene was the scene when she was singing in the club imo.
