Kurt Loder Reviews Don Jon, We Are What We Are and Muscle Shoals


Jon Martello is a very modern Don Juan. Awash in hot chicks, bedding a different knockout every night, he only truly gets off on pornography. "Real pussy is good," he says, "but it's not as good as porn." Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the star of Don Jon (Martello's nickname among his envious buddies at the local pickup club), also wrote and directed the movie, which Kurt Loder says is an impressive debut. We Are What We Are he calls a "rich, dark horror movie" that only lightly invokes the spirit of George Romero, while Muscle Shoals is a remarkably vivid chronicle of Southern R&B.
