It is difficult to classify this 2008 movie as just a comedy/drama, which it certainly is. At the same time, it's also a romance of sorts, and a sensitive look at addiction, aging, dementia in the elderly, and confronting one's own demons. It does all of these things quite well. They also manage to throw in quite a bit of nudity, not surprising considering that the main character is a sex addict.
Victor (Sam Rockwell) is a medical school dropout who keeps his mother, suffering increasingly from dementia, in an expensive private hospital by working days as a historical re-enactor at a theme park. At night, he supplements his income by running a scam at fancy restaurants where he deliberately chokes, then leeches off of whatever wealthy patron happens to save him.
In the meantime, Victor is also a sex addict who attends programs, but usually just to screw one of the other participants of the group. He uses women like some people use chewing gum.
Victor and his mother had been extremely close as Victor grew up, so when she reveals in a lucid moment that Victor's father was not who he thought, Victor turns to his mother's female doctor for help in solving his real identity. But the relationship with the doctor also turns into something different than just concerned caregiver.
This is a very different multi-layered story, one of those that probably deserve multiple viewings to digest all of its parts. I enjoyed it a lot.
