Soderbergh Does Porn
Below I’ve got for you the trailer for the next Steven Soderbergh flick, The Girlfriend Experience. It’s a five-day snapshot into the life of a $2000 an hour call girl (played by real-life porn star, Sasha Grey).
There’s not much I can say about Soderbergh that you don’t already know. He makes two kinds of films: 1) Smart, stylish films that are mainstream accessible and highly entertaining (Oceans 11, Out of Sight, Erin Brockovich) or smart, stylish films that are willfully obtuse (Full Frontal, Solaris, Che). This one, I suspect, falls into the latter category. But the man has made enough good movies, and has enough talent, to do what he damn well pleases, whether the masses see it or not.
