In-depth review Don Jon is the story of Jon, a self-absorbed New Jersey-guy who loves his porn. It's a sad and funny tale of a boy-man who has lost his ability to be truthful and to connect intimately with a woman. And while the woman of his dreams, his "perfect 10" may get him turned on in a way he never has before, it will take another and altogether more real woman to initiate him into his full humanity. Don Jon is a courageous movie and this review is essential reading for any man who beats off to porn regularly.

Spanning over one thousand years, and three parallel stories, the Fountain is a story of love, death, spirituality, and the fragility of our existence in this world. It is a love story, but it is also a journey into a man's deep seated belief that death is a disease and his quest to protect the one he loves from it. The Fountain will have you once again believing that romance and love between two people for all eternity is possible and that as long as the human spirit remains strong, anything is possible - even immortality.

This is less a standard movie review and more of a mini-essay on the theme of shame that is central to the film. Strange events happen in a small village in the north of Germany during the years just before World War I, which seem to be ritual punishment. The abused and suppressed children of the villagers seem to be at the heart of this mystery.
Introducing The TribeJanuary 31, 2011
I'm excited to invite you to the new part of the Masculinity Movies website - The Masculinity Movies Tribe.
Why would you want to join The Tribe? I don't know what is true for you, but what is true for me is that my life has seen dramatic improvements as the depth and intensity in my relating with close male friends (Brothers) has increased.
And now I crave that sort of depth in all areas of my life. Truth-telling is my new hobby. Once I went there, it's so uninspiring to turn back to trivial and mundane conversations (not that I mind superficial conversation, it's just that I want that edge BAD).
So I'm excited to invite you to join the growing Tribe, to practice honing that edge and to see if my experience will also be yours. It will take some time to build the energy, but in the end I think it will kick serious ass. Welcome!

Eyes Wide Shut is like a last joke played on us by film-maker Stanley Kubrick just before his death. The storyline centers on a couple in crisis. It plays out in a highly symbolic world, where deeper layers of meaning are always hinted at and things are rarely what they seem. Meaning in Eyes Wide Shut is thus a very personal thing, which is probably why people still argue over what the movie is really about. Join relationship expert and couple's therapist Nick Duffell on his own exploration of this movie. It will prove enlightening.
