Director: Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, Brie Larson. 90 min. Rated R. Comedy/Drama/Romance.
In his directorial debut, Gordon-Levitt tries to mitigate his boyish charm, and adapts a fake see-through manly gruff voice to play a porn addict, who (surprise!) realizes there's more to life than that. I don't find the subject matter funny, so I felt the whole perspective of dealing with it as a comedy was somewhat annoying. Strangely, Brie Larson is the most interesting character of the whole movie, and she rarely even says a word - a testament to her acting skills. For a much more in-depth view on the same subject, watch Oscar-nominated Steve McQueen's movie, Shame.
