Performers, Cast and Crew:
Steven Soderbergh's SCHIZOPOLIS is a surreal and antirealistic satire of the "synthetic" nature of postmodern life, concentrated in the story of a mild-mannered, wildly imaginative nebbish (Soderbergh himself) who pulls in paychecks as a spin doctor for an L. Ron Hubbard-like religious figure. The outlandish comedy mocks office life, the institution of marriage, the media's influence, and anything else that pops into Soderbergh's head at that very moment. The film unfurls at an unrelenting pace, making for a hysterical romp that never takes itself too seriously.
- Theatrical Release: April 9, 1997
- SCHIZOPOLIS was filmed in Steven Soderbergh's hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
