A Complete History of My Sexual Failures
Freshly dumped and deeply despondent over what seems to be an endless string of disastrous relationships, lovelorn filmmaker Chris Waitt attempts to root out the source of his romantic woes by tracking down each of his ex-girlfriends and asking them point blank about his shortcomings as a boyfriend. The answers Waitt receives are frequently as pointed as his questions, providing unguarded insight into the psyche of a self-absorbed, semi-delusional Lothario who rarely managed to arrive for a date on time much less follow through on his pillow-talk promises.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Pace is snappy, soundtrack full of good alt-rock cuts."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"There's an occasional brief, fierce laugh born out of the absurdity of the situations. At other points, the women provide genuine insight into relationships. Thank god for their realism and sanity. Still, this feels like a short bloated into a feature."
‑ Julian Wood, FILMINK (Australia)
"It's a display of gross bad faith both as documentarist and lover, and its subject probably deserves never to get laid again."
‑ Mike McCahill, Daily Telegraph
"A sporadically entertaining portrayal of male humiliation and self-abnegation."
‑ Philippa Hawker, The Age (Australia)
"It's not as funny as the title suggests, but there's something endearing about this rough video diary in which filmmaker Chris Waitt takes a fly-on-the-wall approach to his past failures as a boyfriend."
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"Maybe, several years post-YouTube, it's just not enough anymore to train a camera on life; maybe the market demands that life be lived with the camera in mind."
‑ Karina Longworth, SpoutBlog
"It's to Waitt's credit that there are genuine moments of poignancy in the film as well as laughs and sheer astonishment."
‑ Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia)
"It's very funny. It's slightly pathetic. It's comforting in a hey-nobody's-human kind of way."
‑ Jon Fortgang, Film4
"Sexual Failures is edited well, the score is great and while certain scenes feel a bit staged, Waitt is immediately likable and a ball to watch on the big screen."
‑ Erik Davis, Cinematical
