definitely has some sexy moments, but i wanted it to be more than just a sexy s&m movie. i hoped it would really have some deeper intellectual thoughts behind it. unfortunately it seems it got too much credit just for treading on new ground, rather than doing something particularly well. i suppose the film was shot well enough and the acting was certainly on par, but the content just wasn’t there for me. i couldn’t sympathize with mr. grey and ms. holloway just seemed pathetic. have some self-respect and then do those things, rather than having your self-respect be dependent upon another.
