Audience Reviews for I Am A Sex Addict

    It was great at first but then it got boring and the funny narrative becomes annoying.

    A fascinating watch as we see one man use film making as a kind of therapy. This has probably been done before, but never so openly. Zahedi is an honest and endearing man. His naivety translates well into both comedy and genuine emotion. The constant breaking of the forth wall and laying out facts about the film's production, as well as his story, make this sometimes jumbled, but always enjoyable. I got a real feel for Zahedi, but this film doesn't wallow in self pity or excuse his actions. It's low budget helps Zahedi create some wonderful little quirks.

    Hmm. It is actually quite difficult to settle upon a rating for this film. Overall, I feel as if it could have been better put together. Parts of the film lacked fluidity. To be sure, I am not remotely bashing the awkwardness of its structure and timeline. I found those elements quite charming. And, above all else, it brought up some very interesting points on the topic of addiction and attraction. I didn't really dig the main character, Caveh Zahedi . I'm not sure exactly why. There was something mildly irritating about him. Yet, I didn't hate him either. In many aspects, Caveh's dimensions fascinated me. His character was extremely well developed. Though the piece had some flaws, I would recommend watching it because it was both interesting and thought provoking.

    This movie was the least to say interesting. Mainly because it's an autobiographical documentary. There's not a lot of people that say, "hey, I'm going to do a movie telling everyone I was addicted to hookers." Kudos for that kind of honesty.
