Don Jon

Don Jon(2013)

Spot on character study of an Italian, Jersey guy addicted to porn. He thinks it's normal to wack off 5 or 6 times a day in front of his laptop; but once he falls in love with super hot Scarlett Johansson and she finds it disgusting, he can't shake his addiction, even for her?

There's actually a lot more to the movie then this thin plot, Julianne Moore plays a basket case student in his night school class and and it's their unexpected dealings with one another that create the real emotional center of this Indie-ish-comedy. Gordon-Levitt's use of repetitive scenes and locations, cleverly shows how insular and routine Jon's world is, a world he doesn't want or need to question until these two women enter his life.
