everyone is expecting too much
9 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The thing that I believe people are missing here is that this isn't a movie, it's a documentary in which some scenes are recreated, it's his true story. Caveh is a human with extreme flaws and whether you love him or hate him: he is real. he has true thoughts, he bluntly states these thoughts which often turns out to complicate virtually everything, yes, some things are repetitive, but this is life! life is repetitive. every person has moments if you look back and see the mistakes you made and so does he. judging by other comments it's like people are watching this expecting there to be an obvious course in the plot, but there isn't in life or in this movie. the raw emotion that he expresses is about his sex addiction, he is merely stating how he felt at the time. he wants to convey this addiction and he does so in an open and though provoking way. i just feel as though everyone was expecting this to be like every other movie, but it's not off of a script, it's real life.
