Stylish but barely mediocre overall
It was OK. I don't see why everyone loves it so much. It wasn't very smart or deep or well-directed.
a film so unique, intoxicating and bizarre that it not only demands another viewing, but is also forgivable as a satirical comedy where the jokes eventually take the back seat.
It is a whirlwind of delight --- attractive actors, stunning couture, spectacular sets and outrageous parties.
Making a movie out of an idea can be pretty tough, cause you have to bend all other elements around that idea. DON JON is one of such films.It mirrors most of the teens (also adults) virtual life and their fantasies too( much like mine DC's Robin having his way with MARVEL's Black Widow. sorry banner).It kind wanna think about the generation's influence towards porn and their mental,physical and moral health which is gonna affect.It a kind of movie where you wanna watch with friends but to hell with SJ i think every single one gonna end up alone with a High definition copy of this movie. shake it out guys.cheers
Every open minded girl or woman must see this movie. Excellent directing and the characters are great. -1 for finishing the movie in a soft and somehow moral way, it wasn't necessary in my opinion. I loved the Don Jon from first half of the movie.A must see
Let me start this review by saying that I love Julianne Moore, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansen. As such, I was really looking forward to it, and perhaps that expectation contributed to my ultimate disappointment.Everyone looks gorgeous in this film (special praise for Tony Danza, a 65-year-old with a much younger man's physique: well done!), but apart from that, there isn't much to recommend it. If it's a comedy, we must have missed all the jokes because it just wasn't funny. The "late '80s North Jersey guido" stereotypes are all trotted out in quick succession, whereafter viewers are beaten over the head with them. The accents! The muscle cars! The tight clothing! The product-heavy hairstyles! The gratuitous shouting and swearing! The mother who endures it all for the unconditional love of her son! If there were an adaptation for the stage, I bet we'd have been sprayed with Drakkar Noir to complete the feeling.Other points: * The always delightful Julianne Moore is under-used here. * The exploration of a character's addiction to porn is at best a side show. This is not a film with really much depth at all.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt excels with his directorial debut and shows that he is equally as strong behind the cameras as he is in front of the cameras. Don Jon is a movie about a New jersey bartender called Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Leviit) who portrays a universal image for men as porn lovers. Also starring alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore who give performances just as strong as the main actor. This movie stuck out to me in one major way, the power to portray how both men and women's perceptions of relationships are deceived by porn and romance movies. Men who watch porn expect women to be like the female porn stars they engage so much time into. In this respect, men automatically decide that all females in this world act like porn stars, which is not the case. When their hopes and dreams of a 'perfect' woman turn out to be false they are automatically let down and don't think that woman is for them. The same can be said for women, who expect a relationship with a man to be that from typical romance movies, romantic, perfect and unbreakable. When these standards are not met by the man and woman in a relationship, it breaks down due to the deception from these romance movies and pornography. Overall Don Jon gives a realistic perspective on modern day relationships, with strong acting, directing and narrative on top. Don't be drawn away from this movie because it is cast under romance as it's nothing like the genre it claims to be. Any moviegoer should see this movie, especially with your other partner as it may say a lot about your relationship and provide ways in which you can improve upon it.
