Netflix It: The Girlfriend Experience.


It took all day yesterday to move my giant couch from my old apartment to the new one. I shopped for couches for 3 months until I bought this one and it's my favorite thing. Shallow? Wait until you sit in this thing.
Anyway, I rewarded all my hard work (by hard work I mean I held the door open for the people who were actually working hard carrying my couch) by making some tea and watching "The Girlfriend Experience" last night.
I liked this movie in a weird way because it's all about this girl who is basically an escort that's trying to grow her business. She didn't live in a crummy apartment, or get beat up, or show the seedy underbelly of being an escort she was a regular girl who dreams about Micheal Kors dresses.
Along the way she has a lot of people giving her business and finance advice and she's got to navigate all of these fake "great deals". I related to it. This girl could have had any consulting job and run into a lot of the same things. There's loads of people out there who have a great way to get you moving forward that aren't real. There are lots of people out there who will give you totally conflicting advice about your job and money.

You should watch this if: You like Indy films a lot
You are a consultant
You like movies in which the main character has really nice clothes.

It is now on my movie queue

Which would be even better if I didn't have 112 pending movies in there already... d'oh. I get myself into trouble by renting things that take a great deal of concentration to watch (Hearts of Darkness is what I've got currently) and never feel like bucking up and just watching it.

Royce - I do the same thing! I have at least 170 movies in my list and half of them I can't figure out where I saw a trailer or what they are about.

Haha yes exactly... I add every single movie to my queue that their website recommends, whether or not I know anything about it
