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

This strange little movie is a mixed bag, hard to eagerly recommend but also hard to completely dismiss.

Candor wins points almost anywhere, and that's what Zahedi has, in spades.

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

At 98 minutes, Addict demands an investment not repaid by its basic unpleasantness.

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.

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.

The narrowness of [Zahedi's] sexual repertoire is the springboard for a charming and boundless homemade sort of filmmaking.

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.

The filmmaker's ability to at once mock himself and consider his dilemma with compassion transforms an otherwise smarmy tale into something honest and insightful.

Zahedi isn't afraid to put himself out there, even when his thoughts and actions are profoundly unflattering.

Zahedi demonstrates that he's a diary-film maker who can transcend confession -- and its lurid cousin, exhibitionism, too.

Caveh Zahedi's essay on promiscuity refracts his obsession with prostitutes through a kaleidoscope of comedy, confession, memoir and exorcism.

I Am a Sex Addict is a sophisticated and open baring of one man's soul. And quite a few other things.

Its undeniable appeal lies in shocking frankness shackled to irony, a combo that should attract indie lovers with psychoanalytic leanings and droll senses of humor.

A funny, inventive, ground-shifting hybrid of essay film, mea culpa, and pathological real-life romantic farce.

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

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