The Girlfriend Experience  +3
She reads the diary of an escort. What an interesting way to tell a story about out financial crisis, from the eyes of a call girl who dates wealthy men. She recounts what she wore and did and what they said. I keep thinking that I will learn some important insight, until the credits and realize there wasn’t one.
Some movies I get an idea very early on if the show is above average or below; this one takes a while to figure out. I used a simple method of getting the above or below average mark; if it were a channel I would have changed it. It’s not the worst movie I have ever seen and has interesting characters but it moves very slowly. It also resembles life in that time passes but there isn’t necessarily a plot line. In the end although it’s not an average movie; it has moments that would win it awards if you didn’t have to sit through the whole thing. It earned 3 out of 5 stars the hard way.
