Gordon-Levitt makes directorial debut

The South by Southwest film festival screened Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s first film, “Don Jon,” Monday night.

Gordon-Levitt made cuts to graphic sex scenes and the title itself in order for it to be shown.

The modern-day movie is about a woman who prefers porn to actual sex.
