The Girlfriend Experience (2009)


“Sometimes clients think they want the real you, but at the end of the day, they say they don’t. They want what… they want what you want to be. They want you to be something else. They don’t want you to be yourself.” – Chelsea

Number of Times Seen – Twice (6 Jun 2009 and 20 Apr 2021)

Brief Synopsis – An expense call girl tries to deal with her boyfriend, her work and the upcoming elections.

My Take on it – Really boring film that doesn’t work on any level.

The film is shot to look and feel like a documentary but none of the characters are actually interesting to follow.

The conversations are made to sound like regular chit chat and that takes away any real impact that this story could have presented because it fails to make us care about anything that happens.

There isn’t a real story here and the way that it all is presented just doesn’t manage to work at all in giving the viewer something worth following.

The film is only 76 minutes long and that is also part of the problem because nothing consequential happens over the course of the movie.

The story also has many strange scenes in it that don;t add anything to the story besides showing the kind of work she does, yet still doesn’t find a way to connect it to the overall narrative which is almost non-existent.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Steven Soderbergh first heard about Sasha Grey when he read an article in Los Angeles magazine about her. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
