A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy

Indie filmmaker Caveh Zahedi confronts his obsession with prostitutes in I Am a Sex Addict, an autobiographical comedy in which he turns his camera on himself. To chronicle his tragically hilarious love life over the past 25 years, the youthful-looking Zahedi combines home movies, animation, and staged scenes. Whether cruising the streets of L.A. for hookers or patiently waiting for a Munich brothel worker, Zahedi shows no shame. Yet the story behind how the movie got made is just as interesting as his real-life antics: Zahedi inadvertently hires a French porn star to play his first wife, the woman portraying a film-school girlfriend refuses to give him a simulated blowjob in a pivotal scene, and the actress cast as an alcoholic fling turns out to be . . . an alcoholic.
