Complete History of My Sexual Failures, A
[] Buy posters from this movie
by Daniel Kelly

"Maybe a little too complete for its own good."
2 stars

“A Complete History of My Sexual Failures” is a great title, but as it turns out not such a great documentary.

Directed by independent filmmaker and all around hopeless individual Chris Waitt, the film chronicles its helmer’s lack of success with women as he interviews and interrogates some of his unfeasibly attractive ex-girlfriends. It’s a great idea for a short, but when dragged out to 89 minutes the flick gets dull very fast.

There are some genuinely funny moments, mostly stemming from absurdly awkward situations, but ultimately it’s a one note idea that its creator never really seeks to expand upon. Waitt doesn’t really make for a sympathetic lead either, he’s messy, desperate and pretty pathetic, but what’s more is the fact he continually depicts himself as an inconsiderate and socially retarded moron. Never mind why he was dumped, I want to know for what reason these women tolerated his advances in the first place.

“A Complete History of My Sexual Failures was released in the UK during June 2008 to a tepid response. It’s not hard to see why.
