Soderbergh does (Gray) no favors with a series of overwrought stylistic choices.

Visually inventive version of Gray's monologue, though the material is not as interesting as that of Swimming to Cambodia.

At best, Gray is a tragicomic Everyman who strikes an empathic chord in his admiring audience; at worst, he's a middle-aged, self-absorbed, hopelessly provincial New Yorker -- an urban hick who won't shut up.

The movie version of Gray's material seems arch, contrived and starchy, not the spontaneous eruption that his theater work manages to resemble.

If you cannot see Spalding Gray live, then do see his monologue films. Gray's Anatomy can be infuriating, but Spalding makes it worthwhile.

Soderbergh is a gifted director (SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE; KING OF THE HILL); Gray is a gifted monologist (SWIMMING TO CAMBODIA). They're just not a very good match for the creation of a film.

There's something intrinsically insincere about the whole quest. Gray is on a search less for a cure than for material.
