Adult star Sasha Grey gives a convincing enough performance and Soderbergh's camerawork is nothing short of hypnotic.
I love this movie. No one can edit like soderbergh
This movie is intriguing, and has some insights into its moment in time. But it is also sloppily constructed and visually taxing. I liked Sasha Grey, though. I'm surprised we haven't seen more of her.
Anyway, The Informant is Soderbergh's better 2009 film.
sasha grey is the only reason you should see this
Very good at what it's trying to do
Screw Up in the Air, this is the REAL zeitgeist film of 2009.
I've seen movies starring Sasha Grey in which her acting was way better, but anyhow in some way the film works decently his way out through the hour and half.
i liked Sasha Grey's performance in this, whether her "bad acting" was intended or not, it still gave off the believability of a "fake" relationship among her clients
I had a girl crush on Sasha Grey until I saw this. Bad acting just turns me off!
Sasha Grey's performance kept this from being two stars for me. A movie that seemed to wrapped up in trying to be something unique. I appreciate Soderbergh's experimentation but was left slightly confused and unfulfilled.
sasha is renowned for her documentaries, unfortunately this isn't one but it's interesting none the less.
I didn't like it, not entirely sure why.
a fan of minimalism so I liked it.
The film felt more like a diary with Soderbergh's images popping up in the viewers mind. Interesting conceptually, but as desperately cold as as fashion ad.
i felt as if the entire film was merely contextual filler for the last scene. the diamond dealer saying gold was the way to invest, diamonds have little resale value. chelsea had become a diamond in an economic crisis, of little resale value made achingly clear by her new client, roll credits.
Not just simple, but scant. With projects like these, simple is just fine, and while a conventionally structured story isn’t necessary, a compelling vision is. The concept of business personae is interesting, but unfortunately, Soderbergh isn’t able to achieve much depth and the film comes across as little more than a sketch.
I thought it was an interesting idea. That saying I lost interest way to quickly.
Pure Soderbergh: distinct, polished, but unbearably irritating at times. But, of course, the lesson to take from here is that porn starts can act.
One of the more successful of Soderbergh's more experimental films. The loose, disjointed plot can be distancing, and Sasha Grey really doesn't bring a whole lot to her role. But there's something about the cold, muddled atmosphere and the unexpected meshing of varying themes that keeps it compelling in spite of itself, even if it does occasionally get bogged down with tedious discussions about finances. Interesting, but not one of Soderbergh's best.
When you cast a porn star, at least wait more than 5 minutes to show her full frontal.
