Review: A Complete History of My Sexual Failures
This movie was on the Independent Film Channel late at night couple weeks ago. The title is very straight forward. It's an autobiographic Sundance film from 2008 about a British guy named Chris Waitt. Throughout the movie he attempts to call up all his old girlfriends and tries to find out what went wrong in their relationships. He asks them a series of awkward questions such as how he could become a better person especially while in a relationship.
This dude looks like a depressed mopey slacker. I don't how he actually got all these women to sleep with him especially because he suffers from ED. One of the funniest/strangest parts of the movie is when he takes an insane about of Viagra leaving him with an erection that lasts all day. He then proceeds to go out onto a busy street and ask every female he comes across if they would like to bone. One lady actually accepts his offer. Well not really, but she does give him her phone number and they later go on a date but fail to do the deed due to his problem.
This movie was unexpectedly hilarious and very easy to relate to especially if you've ever been in a bad relationship. The style is more that of a mockumentary as he embarrasses himself and highlights his faults throughout the entire film. One girlfriend admits that she started dating on Asian men after the break up. This movie is not worth buying, but I would recommend watching it if you ever get the chance to rent/download/borrow/stream it.
Here is the trailer for the film:
