I Am a Sex Addict
Filmfest 2005

I AM A SEX ADDICT manages the difficult task of being both genuinely funny and utterly sincere. Zadehl uses re-enactments, documentary footage, and camera address to tell the real life story of his struggle with sex addiction, how it started, how it spiraled out of control and destroyed all his love relationships, and how he was finally able to stop. This story is interspersed with self-reflexive moments when Caveh breaks the frame, turns the camera on the filmmaking process itself, and records the mishaps and serendipities of the making of the film. At one level, the film is a story of addiction and obsession, and on another, the film deconstructs the very act of storytelling.
