Social 'schizophrenia' detailed by cinematic 'schizophrenia' - Soderbergh, playing multiple roles on and off-screen, makes a low-budget movie experiment with a thin story line and plenty of digressions and assorted side-bits. It's a miracle it exists, really, when so many people try to move from 'lame' amateur movies to 'mature' studio pictures - although since Soderbergh has top-of-the-line equipment, it's may be too polished and crisp to gain true cult status - like Robert Downey's underground works or all those 90's indie pictures shot on Bolexes and blown up to 35mm. Of interest for those who want to see a populist temporary masquerading as a hobbyist. Loses a bit of its gusto in the third act.
