Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes an incredibly strong directorial debut with Don Jon’s Addiction, an outstanding take on romantic comedies. Writing and directing as well as taking the lead role, Gordon-Levitt nails each part of the equation, making for easily my favorite film of the Sundance Film Festival so far. JGL is great as the title character, but Scarlett Johansson is really terrific too, while Tony Danza steals every single scene that he’s in and Julianne Moore is her reliable self. This tale of a modern-day Don Juan dealing with porn addiction and female objectification is peddling not just sex, but a message as well. There’s plenty of nudity and barely covered up shots of porn too, but this never becomes exploitation and actually has more in common with ‘Shame’ than you’d initially expect. Funny and warmhearted, the flick should be a hit when it gets its inevitable 2013 release, though it might need to undergo some trims to avoid an NC-17 rating. Regardless, this is a great movie and not only my favorite of Sundance so far, but my favorite of the year now.

Jennifer Lawrence hosted NBC’s Saturday Night Live last night and in her opening monologue that seemed a bit stiff, Lawrence poked fun at her Best Actress candidates Jessica Chastain, Emmanuelle Riva, Naomi Watts, and Quvenzhane Wallis. Could this tip her in the right direction for Silver Linings Playbook? Check out her opening monologue as well as the hilarious sketch about The Hobbit being made into 18 films:
