Ebert Gets "The Girlfriend Experience"

I was so over the moon about Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience that I've been puzzled by the generally unenthusiastic reviews it's been getting; is it just me? Is it just an automatic response to anything turned out by one of my favorite filmmakers? (No, it couldn't be that, or I would have liked Che more.)

At any rate, I finally feel a little justified at long last-- Roger Ebert's four-star review went up today. Ebert "gets" the movie (as he did Bubble, which was also wildly underrated). So, yeah, hurray for good taste.

I put my review up a couple of weeks ago because the movie was available for pre-release streaming on Amazon; it officially goes to theaters (in NY and LA, anyway) tomorrow. Here's a bump.
