Don Jon

Don Jon (2013)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

A New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends, and church, develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has proven to be a force to be reckoned with of late. The kid has talent. Does this show it? Eh.

Certainly edgy, with some seriously poignant moments and freakishly realistic, Don Jon is a solid insight into well… something like humanity.

Everything is not as cut and dry as it seems, and thanks to technology nothing is like we want it to be. More than just learning who you are and who you want to be with, it’s learning how to cope with reality outside of the 21st century distractions.

It’s a good case study into the psychology of porn addicts, but with it’s second half weird plot turn, and redundant story points, Don Jon isn’t much more than that.

A renter at most, and keep the kiddies far, far away.
