A movie, an experience, an auteur gag reel, a reverse Citizen Kane meets Godard meets Steven Soderbergh… meaning, yes, perhaps the only movie where a director pays homage to himself (and if you happen to find the DVD, I beg you to listen to amazing commentary wherein Steven Soderbergh interviews himself as two separate personalities).
So, what the fuck is “Schizopolis”?
a) The only movie to be the second first movie a director has ever made.
b) A mirror gazing back at the film director’s titanic ego, circa 1990s.
c) A horrible, unwatchable, experimental accident of a motion picture.
d) The masterpiece that saved Steven Soderbergh’s career.
e) The movie that ended Steven Soderbergh’s career.
f) All of the above.
Find out for yourself. Before I can no longer say, “I Can’t Believe It’s on YouTube!”
