Schizopolis Reviews

July 4, 2011
Though funny and observant at times, it still comes across as a strained juvenile guerilla movie whose bizarre antics never caught fire.
September 3, 2010
a filmmaking exercise from someone eager to stretch his legs, do something goofy, and experiment, all of which Soderbergh does without losing his audience

Taken as a whole, the film fails to maintain the consistent absurd tone it is aiming for.

At once an astute study of the banality of modern life and a banal student film wrapped around a series of inside jokes.

Exasperating as it is, Schizopolis has a deliberateness almost interesting enough to offset its sophomoric streak.

Schizopolis is by no means an epochal event, but it's clever and offbeat, well worth appreciating on its own proper terms.

Schizopolis is Steven Soderbergh's berserk and uneven attempt to mimic Bunuel's Un Chien Andalou; he wants to provoke reaction but he's not quite sure how to go about it.

Schizopolis represents a minor act of self-indulgence on the part of the sometimes eccentric Steven Soderbergh but results in major tedium for the viewer.

Who knew that deep inside the soul of Steven Soderbergh beat the heart of a great comic actor?

The fractured and elliptical narrative does make for tough going at times but viewers who hang in there are duly rewarded with moments of true inspiration.

No kidding, this is one weird movie. But if you're open to the wacky experience and you are patient, you will have a lot of laughs and gain surprising insight into contemporary society.

It's fresh, unexpected and goofy. It's not a smart career move, just a film that its director wanted to make for some crazy reason, and he made it.
