Film Trailers: DON JON

     Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, Don Jon, has been receiving a lot of positive notices since its debut at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. I got to see the film, at a special screening at this years South by Southwest Festival last March and although I was not completely blown away by it or as fascinated as many others were, I still found it to be an assured directorial debut from the actor and a fairly thought provoking critique on the average, run-of-the-mill romantic comedy that has suffocated Hollywood for too long. The film has an outstanding cast with Gordon-Levitt in the lead, playing the guidoish playboy who is addicted to porn. The cast is rounded out by Julianne Moore, Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson and the best-in-show and truly hilarious Tony Danza. Here is a link to my review, the movie was then called Don Jon's Addiction, from SXSW and here is the trailer. I definitely recommend seeing it, even if it was a little redundant, at times, in my view. Enjoy.
