    Don't be fooled (or is it seduced) by the salacious title or overt sensual appeal of Sasha Grey (if that's what you're after there are far better places to see her on display). The film is disjointed, distant, and vacant of any character development or depth. It's more about human bankruptcy than it is about any economic one. Perhaps it's only really meaningful Don't be fooled (or is it seduced) by the salacious title or overt sensual appeal of Sasha Grey (if that's what you're after there are far better places to see her on display). The film is disjointed, distant, and vacant of any character development or depth. It's more about human bankruptcy than it is about any economic one. Perhaps it's only really meaningful comment is the films narrow indictment of the current Jewish world view in contemporary America. I know that's a stretch but after you've spent 80 minutes in a duldrum you might want to reach for anything. Soderbergh is far too talented for this phone-in of a film. He knows this terrain well. Revisit 'sex, lies and videotapes' for a mirrowed style but a film of importance and substance. Expand

    Yes, we get it the economy is bad, and guess what, So is this movie! I couldn't believe what a bore this was! uninteresting, and the director sucks. Stop pretending to be making "art" being this movie is garbage.

    In my opinion this director has to take a look to the european art cinema, because this film sucks.
    It's about economy, power and sex. And it's slow. And is a empty movie with no content or story or whatever.
    How interesting is that?

    Attention: there's absolutely no art in this movie.

  1. Most of the dialogue is listless, and no matter how much Soderbergh snips and stitches, the movie is a corpse with twitching limbs.
  2. The effect is impressionistic and provocative, with the emphasis falling differently on scenes because of our knowledge or lack thereof.

    Fascinating study of free enterprise in free fall. While it may disappoint thrill-seekers, "Girlfriend" should still delight Soderbergh fans and niche auds.
