my brief thoughts on.... 'Confessions of a Porn Addict'

i don't know what it is with me and mocumentaries this weekend.... but this was my second one.... a very tragically comedic look at porn and all of it's dangers.... it makes most porn lovers look like boy scouts in comparision.... this man really loves his porn.... to the point that he loses everything because of it.... the movie has many ups and downs.... but a strong storyline throughout with a good 1st, 2nd and 3rd act.... the main character actually has an arc in his personality and you feel for him and all of his troubles....

Mark is obsessed with all things pornographic.... he sometimes watches things on the TV, his computer and his laptop all at the same time.... he has an extensive collection of DVD's and videos as well as the first book and 16 mm movie he ever saw when he was a kid.... this man loves his porn.... but when his wife gets tired of him being so self centered and focused on the sex industry and the fact that he gets caught masturbating in a video store.... she leaves him.... he has no job and the threat of jail looms over him.... so he enlists the help of his filmaker friends to make a documentary about him so that maybe the courts won't throw him in jail.... which is his biggest fear.... however, along the way he finds out the wife is in the porn business now and the search is on to find her and reconcile.... i found myself really enjoying this film despite the subject matter.... it was presented in a tasteful way.... if you can say that.... and it was very entertaining.... i would give it 3 out of 5 stars.... mainly because the ending was kind of a let down.... the build up was so much that i guess i expected a little more out of the filmakers.... which were actually the writers and directors of the movie and also the stars.... one of whom you may recogonize from the short lived show 'Kenny vs. Spenny'.... Spencer Rice.... if you love your porn, you'll enjoy this.... it just might make you feel a little less creepy.

if you like this: get on the internet as you know you want to find some porn of your own now
