5.0 out of 5 stars The complete history of my sexual failures - touching, at times moving, often funny mockumentary., 29 Sept. 2011
By 
This review is from: A Complete History Of My Sexual Failures [DVD] (DVD)
This is a really touching documentary looking into Chris Wiatt, and the reasons why he is single. As he turns the camera on himself and explores his life with an at times brutal honesty, you cannot help but be alternately moved by his plight or amazed that he has ever had a girlfriend!

His tactic is simple, to go back and interview all his ex-girlfriends and ask why the relationship failed. At first he has trouble getting any of them to talk to him (with some hilarious results), but after a while he manages to get some interviews and some painful truths emerge. Mixed in with this is the somewhat matter of fact input from his mother, who also points out many of his faults (in a loving way) and digs out lots of old love letters from the loft that go even further to explaining Wiatt's situation.

After a while the film morphs into a quest for Wiatt to rediscover his mojo, using the lessons he has learned from his exes. This segment is again brutally honest in places, hilarious in others and quite touching for the rest.

I am in two minds as to whether or not it is a real documentary. Much of it feels genuine, but there are certain episodes which feel a little scripted and added in to push the story along. It doesn't really matter if it is or isn't though, this is a great film. It manages to combine insight with genuine humour, and is one that I will watch again. Five stars.
