from www.slashfilm.com – Seeing Don Jon’s Addiction at Sundance was quite an experience, in part because of all the porn. The film, written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, follows a character (played by the director) who is addicted to online pornography. Despite being able to lure very attractive women home for sex, he prefers porn. In fact, the objectification aspect of watching porn is what he likes — he gets to see the exact images he wants, with no outlay of energy or emotion on his own part.

So there’s a fair amount of porn in the movie, and clips of stuff that might be a little intense for those who don’t spend much time checking out sex on the internet.

There’s no image that, in and of itself, would result in a rating harder than an R. But the intensity of the clips is often pretty high, and there are a lot of clips. (Think of them like the repeated drug-prep scenes in Requiem For a Dream.) They’re important, and deliberately confrontational. The audience needs to see how reliant the character is on them, and how cut off from reality the images are.

But what’s in the movie now is likely too much for the MPAA, and so the cut that festival audiences are seeing now won’t be the one that people see in theaters when Relativity releases it this summer.
