Storyline

A man obsessed with prostitutes discovers that love is a lot more expensive than sex. An entertaining peek into the world of prostitution from the client's point of view. Movies often portray sex-workers, but their customers remain well hidden - faceless and nameless. Girlfriend Experience calls attention to this bias, at the same time as it shifts the cinematic gaze onto the client. Written by Anonymous

It's a faux documentary following Daniel as he roams the night looking for prostitutes. He's looking for GFE (GirlFriend Experience). There are "re-enactments" with the prostitutes. The women are mostly nameless. There are testimony from other nameless men. It's a high-concept Canadian indie film. It's intriguing at first but it quickly gets tiresome. This guy is hopeless and infuriating. The tone is a drag. There is no drama, no tension, no nothing. Nobody should care about this guy. It's an empty movie just like him.
