Thanks For Sharing
It's safe to say that sex addiction is no longer the misunderstood step-brother to alcohol and drug addiction. Thanks to reality television, cable shows like "Californication" and last year's awards season contender "Shame," the stigma around sex addiction, of it not really being a problem or something that only affects scuzzy perverts, has long since evaported. Which makes Stuart Blumberg's directorial debut "Thanks For Sharing" all the more curious. An uneven, somewhat out-of-time dramedy, the film takes great pains to confirm that sex addiction is just like any other addiction, but isn't sure what to say beyond that.

All it takes is one little film to bust down a taboo, and so it's seemingly been done with Steve McQueen's "Shame." The critically-acclaimed drama was a rare picture to tackle the question of sex addiction, and while it hasn't quite opened the floodgates, it's made it easier for other filmmakers to tackle the subject matter.

Stuart Blumberg's career really took off last year. While the screenwriter did have good credits to his name (the terminally underrated teen comedy “The Girl Next Door,” and "Keeping the Faith," starring his good friend Edward Norton), he wasn't exactly a household name. By the end of the year, that would all radically change and he became the acclaimed screenwriter behind Lisa Cholodenko's "The Kids Are All Right," and shortly thereafter he had earned himself his first Original Screenplay Oscar nomination.

Considering that the majority of his best-known roles are in the somewhat-serious likes of "The Shawshank Redemption" and "Mystic River," it's easy to forget that Tim Robbins is a prodigious comic talent. At the start of his career, he appeared mostly in comedies, both good ones ("The Sure Thing," "Bull Durham") and bad ones ("Howard The Duck," "Eric The Viking"). Even today, as an Oscar-winner, Robbins occasionally finds time to crop up in brief roles in gutbusters like "Anchorman" and this summer's "Green Lantern."

While the lion's share of the acclaim for Lisa Chodolenko's "The Kids Are All Right" went to the two leads, Annette Bening and Julianne Moore, the ensemble in general were terrific, with fine performances from Mia Wasikowska, Josh Hutcherson and Yaya DaCosta, and most notably, one of the best performances in years from Mark Ruffalo, who made his role with a shading, depth and likability that many actors might not have been able to pull off.
