  • It's one of those films where you feel guilty if you don't rave over how amazing it is, but I just get sad thinking about the life of this child geisha
  • Perhaps it's my female liberation or my experience living in Asia, but the entire thing just makes me bummed out

      Rob Marshall turned a New York Times’ Bestseller into a Hollywood box office hit. I have to admit though, it’s not a film I would want to watch over and over again.

      It’s brilliant.


      Emotional.

      Deep.

      That said, it’s kind of depressing despite the ending.

      The entire film has a bit of a shadow cast over it, like a beautiful day overcast with clouds.

      It’s almost chilly.

      Cold ...


      • even.

        It’s one of those films where you feel guilty if you don’t rave over how amazing it is, but I just get sad thinking about the life of this child geisha.

        Perhaps it’s

        my female liberation or my experience living in Asia, but the entire thing just makes me bummed out.

        The life of a geisha, while celebrated and exalted, is nonetheless heart-breaking.

        Not my favorite film.
