Don Jon 
Review: Don Jon
3/4 stars

Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes his directing debut with Don Jon, a funny, charming, fast-paced little film that showcases some of the greatest talents possessed by the actors involved. The performances here are absolutely tremendous, especially from Scarlett Johansson whose accent is spot-on. If you're turned off by the slightly lurid story, you'll easily admire the performances and Levitt's script as they both sparkle with clarity and wit. I enjoyed the comedy aspect of the film and the journey of Levitt's character through his uncontrollable addiction to pornography. However it's really Levitt's (as a director) mindset on the media and how it basically controls peoples needs and sex lives which really makes this film shine. Levitt's character loves porn, expecting real sex to relate to that. It doesn't. Johansson's character loves terrible romance movies, expecting real relationships to relate that. It doesn't. It's these expectancies that ultimately push people down the wrong path, and Don Jon explores that beautifully.

3/4
