the nothing experience...

I think I may have been traumatized by the new Steven Soderbergh new THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE. Seriously, it's a such a lousy film, watching it was such a waste of my time, even at under an hour and twenty minutes, I've been walking around in a grumbly, pissed off mood for days, and I really haven't felt much like watching films or writing. It's just like, why bother? Mediocrity obviously rules. This world is for the Steven Soderberghs and the Sasha Greys, pimping their empty and humorless Luxury Goods-as-substance fake indie movies, I'm just living here...
I might write something a bit more detailed as I move father away from the traumatic event, but more likely I'll move on to something else, if the joy of cinemagoing hasn't been robbed from me forever. Any suggestions on a movie that won't make me feel like my soul is drowning in an ocean of orphans' tears?

Did I miss a meeting? When did Ms Grey crossover from her usual slurping-and-screaming antics into Indie movies?

yeah, I was going to wait and netflix it but after your post I think I can get by on never viewing this film. Ms. Grey has some movie recommendations for you though! http://current.com/items/90088825_five-favorite-films-with-sasha-grey.htm
This girl, and I do mean girl, does particularly base, degrading style porn so its a bit disconcerting to see her getting all kinds of publicity now. This really isn't the kind of person the media should be validating.
