the girlfriend experience

watched stephen soderbergh's latest movie the girlfriend experience last night through mag pic's new on demand service...which is pretty cool. similar to what IFC has started doing with IFC Festival Direct, magnolia also seems to be offering a selection of their recently acquired festival purchases for instant gratification in the comfort of your own home.

the film is definitely experimental in spirit...it was shot with a newly developed digital camera on an extremely low budget, and lots of the dialog was improvised. soderbergh flexes his stylistic muscle on this one, favoring antonioni-like long shots and framings, and the editing's pretty slick too. check out the trailer below.

Certainly not Sasha Grey's best work.
