Plot: Acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh films Spalding Gray’s monologue--originally written for the stage--with an energy that makes for an intriguing cinematic viewing experience. Opening with a succession of black-and-white interviews that details horrific incidents dealing with human eyeballs, Gray’s topic of discussion becomes readily apparent. Eventually, Gray admits that he himself experienced a near-traumatic episode when one of his eyes became blurry and unfocused. Terrified at the thought of surgery--which would have involved scraping his eyeball--Gray decided to search for another way to rid himself of his unfortunate condition. In a series of hysterical tales, Gray describes his attempts to find a nonsurgical cure for his affliction. These include calling a Christian Science hot line, flying to the Philippines to meet with a psychic surgeon, and traveling to Minnesota to partake in a Native American ceremony that aims to sweat the problem out of him. When Gray realizes that these approaches aren’t working, he must finally decide whether to place himself under the knife and risk losing his eye. As usual, Soderbergh’s keen vision adds a spark to the proceedings. His roaming camera emphasizes the dialogue in a way that the stage could never do, allowing Gray to do his thing
