This Week in Netflix Highlights DON JON and User Reviews

     April 30, 2014


Though Netflix is an excellent resource for digging into films and TV shows both new and old, it’s lack of accessibility makes it tough to find out when new media has been added.  Luckily, our partners at Complex Media make it a point to highlight new additions to the Netflix library, and today’s spotlight is on the newly available Don Jon and the value of user reviews.  Gordon-Levitt wrote, directed, and stars in the film as a porn-addicted Don Juan-type who attempts to reform himself.  It’s a solid comedy featuring a swell supporting cast led by Scarlett Johansson and Tony Danza, but the highlight of the film is actually behind the camera.  Gordon-Levitt proves himself to be an exciting new talent as a director, making some really interesting choices both visually and structurally within the film.  Hopefully it’s a sign of more to come.
