Quotes:
Spalding Gray:I looked across the park, and in the distance I saw leaves blowing in the wind, bunch of children running, a red ball rolling, a flock of starlings taking off. I covered my right eye:
[suiting hand actions to words]
Spalding Gray:no leaves. Blur of children, blotch of red, no birds. Covered my left: ah! Ecstacy. Cover my right: despair. Ecstacy. Despair. And I realized at that moment that I was now living the perfect yin and yang existence.

A potentially boring film, made great thanks to Steven Soderbergh!, 2 March 1999
Author: Snap Dad from 'Stralia (Australia)

This movie is simply a 90 min monologue about this guy and his medical troubles. He explains how he tried all kinds of remedies and potions, because he was too chicken to bite the bullet and get an operation. This movie would seem boring at first glance, but the director - one of my new favourites - Steven Soderbergh makes this an interesting and worthwhile journey into this mans psyche. If you're unsure about this movie, check out Soderbergh's other masterpiece 'Schitzopolis' and then if you have any doubts about his directing ability then that's your loss, not mine. Gray's Anatomy... taste's like chicken. I'm told.
