Don Jon (2013)


don-jon10Jon Martello played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a good looking, muscular, old fashioned man. His friends often call him Don Jon because of his capacity to drag to bed a lot of women every week. But even having that great magnet to ladies, the satisfaction and ecstasy he is feeling every time he is just by himself in front of his computer watching pornographic movies seems to hold his best interest. (Scarlett Johansson) Barbara Sugarman is a pretty, witty, old fashioned lady. Based on Hollywood passionate film, she has the strong mind to find the love of her life and ride on to travel life’s journey. Struggling with the good old fashioned prospecting for the opposite gender, Barbara and Jon fight against the common notion in trying to search and find the real relationship of their life. This surprising comedy film is directed and written by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Acting and directorial versatility of Joseph Gordon Levitt

Joseph Gordon Levitt demonstrated that he can both direct and act at equal time. Taking Tony Danza back in the film was a wise decision also (into a more diverse father role that everybody knows him from). The film is all concerning Joseph Gordon-Levitt acting. In front and at the back of the camera, deciding when to slash the movie together that others might name it as pornography (though, it is not, because it is a movie regarding addiction.) Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes a guarantee that his first appearance as a director-writer in Don Jon will be an educational analysis of the hope placed on the dealings in the settings soaked with media distortion of both men and women. It is a movie allegedly regarding pornography, but that is only the scrapes Gordon place in his assessment of contemporary affairs. The clasp that disapproves the cutting remarks on how we object instead of connecting with the opposite gender.

The point of the movie 

Sex obsession is a thing that public is not taking seriously and just making fun of it most of the time. But you can make it a lot more serious than it has to be and Don Jon confirmed it in a humorous way. While Michael Fassbender rolled with it and acted it in drama, the movie seems to be a bit lighter in nature the whole time. It has still some dramatic scene in it, but the touch of funny moments makes it a lovely movie to view. If you are not so aware of the theme of sex it is showing, then you will gain influential movies about the effects of addiction.

Don Jon reveals a clever sense of cutting both sound and picture by Gordon-Levitt and the editor, Lauren Zuckerman, accentuate Don’s habit without allowing it to be boring. The auditory tricks and visual effects are not gimmicks. Instead, they are master tools plays a vital part in the story.
