Finding humour in Hollywood

Cineplex Movie Blog – Talking Don Jon with ScarJo & JGL

For his first time behind the camera, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises, (500) Days of Summer), chose a subject (target?) close to home: Hollywood.

With Don Jon, which he stars in and wrote, Gordon-Levitt uses a young man’s compulsive consumption of internet porn as a metaphor for the daily objectification we’re all guilty of while pointing the finger at the media machine that makes doing so seem natural and easy.

So while you think this may just be a movie about porn, hard bodies and pretty gals, think again.
