That self-indulgent documentary form, the biographical essay film, earns its most onanistic installment ever.

Were the articulate director a less obnoxious presence, he might have just pulled off his audaciously self-conscious endeavor.

... the film's flaws stem from 'TMZ' -- too much Zahedi.

... Zahedi tries to construct a narrative from his epic bad behavior, presumably for the purpose of shedding light on something. What this is remains mysterious after a single viewing, but not so mysterious as to inspire a second.

... while some may bail early, those who stay to the end are likely to dwell on Zahedi's unwavering (some would say unrelenting) belief in his own artistry, as well as the film's many funny, quotable lines ...

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Zahedi is wry and certainly fearless as he pours his sex life onto the screen, but around the ninth time he goes cruising for prostitutes it gets a little hard to take.

I Am a Sex Addict starts out amusingly. But, as any one-joke movie is bound to, it quickly becomes tiresome.

It's hard to disapprove of Zahedi, who is far more of a pushover, or a patsy, than the fierce and knowing women he meets.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Whether you find either man funny or infuriating depends in large part on whether you identify more with their narcissistic quests for self-knowledge or the collateral damage left in their wakes.

Making this confessional film may have been therapeutic for Zahedi, but it's pure torture for an audience.

Self-involved and self-indulgent. It's almost as if [Zahedi] made the movie for himself, for his loved ones and for no one else.

Zahedi pulls off the difficult trick of making you despise, pity and admire him. You get the feeling it's been much the same for the women in his life.

The movie nonetheless can't sustain the thin interest of a man's obsession with outlaw fellatio.

Although it's blunt, powerful stuff, it's also quite often amusing.

Consequently, I Am a Sex Addict is ruthlessly frank in its freakish frivolity and absurdly lyrical in the grubby ramblings of its professed and confused cad.

Even if you can keep it in your pants, you'll be tickled and intrigued by Zahedi's look at why he couldn't.

I kinda don't wanna burst Zahedi's bubble, because at least he's being open and exploratory and honest about how infatuated with himself he is, which is more than can be said for most men, but still: Bwahahaha, get over yourself, dude.

It just might be the truest film about addiction, of any kind, that has ever been made.

We're encouraged to root for his happy ending, but he doesn't quite work hard enough to earn it.
