Don Jon is a bold first film by Joseph Gordon-Levitt – who also wrote and stars in it. Jon is a bartender who has a few basic things he likes – his body, his pad, his family, his church, his boys and his porn. He’s a player – so much so that his boys call him The Don. When he meets Barbara Sugarman, he may have met his match – but will she be a match for his porn? Which is better – fantasy or reality?
Hey Everyone, earlier this year I had a chance to spend a few minutes with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I wanted to hold onto this interview until it was time for his Directing debut Don Jon to hit the theaters. He talks about what it was like to direct his first feature film and provides interesting commentary when I asked him how do you avoid not being paralyzed by the process. Don Jon opens nationwide Friday, September 27, 2013.
You know how sometimes you into a movie with a certain expectation of what you’re going to see? You’ve seen the trailers and they’re cut a certain way giving you the impression that a movie is going in one direction and then you go to see it and it turns out to so much more. Well that’s what happened with me when I watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s new movie “Don Jon”. (In theaters everywhere Friday, September 27th)

Christopher Nolan’s Inception is, at its heart, a heist flick and, therefore, adheres to the conventions of one: finding a target, selecting a team, creating the plan and pulling the heist – only something goes awry and improvisation is called for. The only real differences are that a) the idea is not to steal something, but to place something, and b), the scene of the heist [or anti-heist, if you will] is someone’s subconscious – that process is called extraction.
