Is Sex Addiction bad for your health?
27 October 2013 | by mifunesamuraiSee all my reviews

In this quasi-art-film that plays like a voyeuristic soft-porn is a story about a sex addicted man called, Richard O, played brilliantly by the great and versatile French actor, Mathieu Amalric. The sex scenes are pretty hardcore, some erotic, some confronting, and some just plain weird, but fascinating to watch! These confronting scenes didn't seem to scare Mathieu Amalric, who was so convincing as the tortured slave to sex. In this day and age, sex can be found almost anywhere, most notable on the internet, and it was something that this film did not look into. Maybe the director didn't want to go down that path which would open up another can of worms. Instead it looked into how a lost, wandering soul, can find solace in the pleasures of sex. How the act of sexual fantasies can be a perfect distraction from the harsh realities of life. Not recommended for the weak hearted, or the narrow-minded. But worth for the performance of Mathieu Amalric.
