Is This the Golden Age of Sex Addiction Films?

A trip to the movie theater is an experience of what the culture wants to sell you; often, it’s sex, in some form or fashion. Which is why it’s been interesting to see movies about sex addiction multiply in the multiplex, with films that could be puncturing our society’s obsession with sex next to films that are mostly about sex. Even if they’re really just about… Read More

10 Movies to Stream Before They Disappear from Netflix Instant

It’s not quite Streamageddon, but as you may’ve heard, Netflix apparently had some contracts that end with 2013, and thus we have one of the streaming service’s occasional purges of valuable catalog titles. And it would’ve happened fairly quietly too, were it not for good ol’ Reddit, where someone painstakingly checked out the individual pages for God-knows-how-many titles and came up with a list of nearly 100 movies and TV shows scheduled to disappear from Netflix Instant on 1/1/2014. There’s some genuinely great stuff in here, proving yet again that this whole “phasing out of physical media for ephemeral streaming that comes and goes as it pleases” thing should give us all pause, but there’s no time for that—there’s barely twelve hours of 2013 left, and you’re about to lose some great movies. So if you’re planning on making New Year’s Eve a movie night, here’s a few soon-to-expire suggestions: … Read More

The Greatest Movie Trailers of 2013

Vanity Fair recently published an essay asking if 2013 is the greatest year for movies since the Gone with the Wind era. That benchmark is certainly debatable, but if we had to judge this year’s cinema based on the trailers alone, we’d say there’s a strong possibility 2013 could trump all. This year’s trailers got us talking and left us wanting more (everything a good trailer should do) — and we’ve surveyed the best of 2013, below. What trailers left a lasting impression on you this year? … Read More

Is ‘Don Jon’ the First Truly Honest Movie About Porn?

From Boogie Nights and Wonderland to About Cherry and Lovelace, there’s no shortage of films about pornography, and it’s not hard to guess why: in examining the (pardon the expression) ins and outs of the industry, either seriously or satirically, filmmakers can fulfill a voyeuristic and prurient interest in the business of sex without engaging in it directly. But in almost every instance, films about porn deal solely with its production rather than its consumption. It’s understandable — the former offers high drama, drugs, and naked people having sex, while the latter is, even under the best circumstances, kind of gross. But two new films make a frank attempt to shed some light on this dark corner of the porn experience, and come up with some insights on not only how we consume it, but how it affects us. (And by “us,” I mostly mean dudes.) … Read More
