A perceptive snapshot of cultural and psychological alienation from a perspective we rarely see so free of exploitation and sensationalism: that of the sex worker. The chilly, cold disconnect we feel from the lead (an exceptionally real and understated performance from adult movie star Sasha Gray) is intentional and very effective at conveying the themes.
It doesn't say anything too deep but it is quite an insightful study with a particular focus on modern relationships and loneliness and is another gem among Soderbergh's more experimental, low key works. It is snappy and full of engaging dialogues as well as formally handsome cinematography in typical Soderbergh style.
Towards the end of the film it became clear to me that the central character was a confused and destructive force that represented the insecurity and fallibility of love and human connection in a cold and almost psychopathic 21st century, but also a victim of that very same thing.
