You think this guy Starker is nothing? You're right! He is nothing!He gets nothing out of life so he fixates on some trinket and decides it's precious. It's ridiculous. But it's dangerous. There are over a billion losers out there who all want to believe they're something. Some guy says he found the answer? That's how it starts. Religion. Health food. Aerobics. Pantyhose. Anything... Everything to distract them from the fact that they're bored, meaningless, impotent nothings waiting to die. ...

low budget postmodern sci fi trash...that's a good thing?
Split was one of the more original films I have ever seen, though I am not entirely sure if that is good. I do know that I thought at the time this movie would be come a midnight/cult movie due to its weirdness. The plot was out-there/semi-comprehensible, but the narrative (if you can call it that) unfolded in a very interesting manner. I have been unable to find this on video again, the original store I rented it at having long since folded. This unavailability I think has added to the fondness I have associated with this production. Who knows, perhaps it would be horrible upon modern viewing. I do remember the plot to be Matrix-like in a number of ways, as well as akin to the Philip Jose Farmer penned Dayworld novels.
