Steven Soderbergh's Porno Without the Porn

    How do you redeem yourself after making audiences suffer through a 4-hour movie about a Cuban dude on a t-shirt? Make a twenty minute porno, that’s how.

    Well, that was probably Steven Soderbergh’s intention but since he’s a real director with a real rep, he probably realized that wouldn’t be a good career move. So he made a real movie with a real porn star—in this case, know-no-limits Sasha Grey. You might’ve seen her in The Root’s “Birthday Girl” video. Her Myspace says she like’s Godard, so she’s one of those “hip” porn stars doing porn for art’s sake.

    Soderbergh’s film is called The Girlfriend Experience and between this and the film where Megan Fox may or may not appear naked, it’s shaping up to be enh spring/summer/fall/year. Again, it all really depends on whether or not Megan will, in fact, be naked.

    Back to the film. In it, Grey play’s a high-class hooker, kinda like that chick NY Governor Eliot Spitzer got caught with. Her character charges an absurd $2,200/hour for all the hang-ups and sex of a real relationship. I couldn’t imagine paying that much for sex so this movie’s akin to some far-out fantasy shit, like Gattaca or something. What I can afford is a movie ticket—I think. Or I can just stream some of chick’s porn for free. A good actress, she is.
