Memoirs of a Geisha

I was looking so forward to seeing MG because the book was absolutely fabulous (it took Arthur Golden 15 years to research and write it). However, it appears that my fears weren't for naught: they Hollywoodized the hell out of it, right down to using Chinese actors and actresses to represent Japanese culture. The two countries are not interchangeable.

Upon reading both the review of MG in yesterday's WashPo and in Tuesday's LA Times, I'm no longer in a hurry to see it.
