Did You Know?


Once notable in the mid to late '90s French adult film starlet Rebecca Lord was cast off the street when she was spotted by writer/director Caveh Zahedi. He breaks the fourth wall of film making to tell us the audience then until he further researched her stage name online that he personally had NO idea that she was a notable name in the adult film industry. Merely a very gorgeous woman. He also spotted her because of her Escorting dates that were listed on a website coincided with the re-shoot dates he was then planning to take place in San Francisco that she listed on a site. The film's subject was, oddly enough, about Mr. Zahedi's life-long personally addictions to Prostitutes (Escorts). See more »


The Italian prostitute says her fee is "100,000 lira." "Lira" is the singular form (like "dollar"). She should have said "100,000 lire" (the correct plural form, like "dollars"). See more »

daring film, but for most of the time wordy and a bit annoying
23 September 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I am a sex addict is not another stupid comedy as one might suppose while looking at the tittle. It makes an attempt to be a smart film on very important subject, that is sex addiction. The movie succeeds in this respect and even at some points resembles more drama than comedy. Although I approve of extremely personal films with wise message and dealing with difficult, taboo subjects, I regrettably cannot write that I am a sex addict is a good or bad film. In fact, it's a mixed bag and wasted potential for me. Caveh Zahedi tells the story about himself without embelishment and sentimentalism, which requires a great bravery and distance. Nonetheless, the picture is very uneven. It starts very well, but then it 's worse and worse. The flick becomes wordy and lengthy. What is the biggest vice is a first-person narration which is repetitive and to a large degree irrelevant. Zahedi also appears too frequently (he's present in every scene). The superior moments are when Zahedi plays with form in order to entertain viewers. The ending is satisfactory, but it's too late to save this average movie.
