Put plain and simple - 1996's "Schizopolis" was pretty awful film-making on all counts.

One of this film's biggest and most annoying deficits was its main character, Fletcher Munson who was played by this picture's director, Steven Soderbergh.

I found that Munson was such a quirky, zero-charisma flake that I just couldn't identify with him in any way, nor could I accept his total asininity or his pointless, scatter-brained motives, either.

All-in-all - "Schizopolis" was a very amateurish production and I do not recommend is it as worthwhile entertainment at all. No, I don't.

"Schizopolis" (from 1996) is clearly a "cult movie" wannabe that is so conceited about its own apparent genius that at the beginning of the film director, Steven Soderbergh (in a truly condescending tone) personally addresses the movie-audience, telling them that if they don't understand this picture's story-line, then, they must keep viewing it over and over again until they do. (definitely no funny)

Produced on a modest budget of just $250,000 - "Schizopolis" is clearly one of those movies where I swear that they were making up all of this asinine nonsense as they went along.

With "Schizopolis'" story being consistently disjointed, fragmented, shallow, and empty-headed - I was completely bored with this amateurish rubbish within the first 15 minutes.
