I Am a Sex Addict

Director: Caveh Zahedi
Year Released: 2005
Rating: 0.5

Gaunt Zahedi (reminding me of Gollum from Lord of the Rings, substituting rings for holes) admits he is addicted to sex, and documents how this addiction led to the termination of so many relationships and marriages. Here's the problem: I don't believe him. I'm not saying he doesn't have a problem, I just don't believe in the version shown here - he's an unreliable narrator in his own story (he let's you know this immediately), a slimy character who thinks of only his own satisfaction and interests, of his own image in his own camera lens. He uses the opportunity to air out nasty details about real-life cohorts (and his actresses, who he takes cheap-shots at) and 'brag' about his virility (or indulge himself by screaming before faking an orgasm). At least when Woody Allen's on-screen he's self-deprecating: this character makes narcissists look bad.
