Don Jon is a 2013 American romantic comedy-drama film written, directed by, and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This movie is rated R and there are edited clips taken out of porn movies. These clips are very carefully edited but it is porn and I was rather surprised at first at seeing them but the subject of the film is a young man addicted to porn for sexually satisfaction. I think the trailers didn't really indicate that in fact after I had seen the movie I realized that style wise it reminded very much of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. Both Joseph Gordon Levitt and Scarlett Johanssen hit it spot on with their New Jersey accents and attitude. It is rather funny seeing how Barbara (Scarlett Johanssen's character) does manipulate the Don Jon character with sex. Tony Danza has a great role as Don Jon's father and Danza and Gordon-Levitt actually do look as if they are father and son. The movie is a bit quirky and Juliane Moore role as Esther an older classmate of Don Jon who becomes his first female friend is quite moving and where their relationship goes is unexpected. In fact the movie ends rather abruptly and you do go "huh that's it" but over all it is an interesting look between sex, watching porn and how that can disconnect you from actually feeling love for another human being.
