Tribeca Film Festival

So, I had the honor and pleasure of attending the Tribeca Film Festival last night. Me and my friend went to see 'The Girlfriend Experience'. The movie, shot documentary style, was about the life of an upscale call girl. Apparently this movie was the most anticipated film of the festival. It was directed by Steven Soderbergh (Oceans 11) and starred a well known porn star, Sasha Grey. Um, this movie was weird and whack from the start. It kept going in and out between stories. Very confusing most of the actors weren't great especially the main chick. I was not impressed and do not understand what all this buzz is about. I want my $17.75 back thank you. This viewer summed it up best:
It was awful...It was an incoherent boring mess and was very disappointed.

I did, however, enjoy just being there and had a great time. I just wish I'd picked a better movie.
