The irony of Anesthesia is that, while it uses interconnectivity as a storytelling mechanism, the characters do not really connect.

A grand gesture going nowhere.
A stellar cast of serious-minded players...fight a losing battle against the characters' overwritten dialogue and unlikely behavior.
A pile of incomprehensible existential gibberish by the vastly untalented actor-writer-director Tim Blake Nelson about the meaning of life in an age of technology, told in the tiresome style of multiple characters who intersect at odd angles ...
