Eight self-absorbed, self-deluded Hollywood types take turns not connecting in Steven Soderbergh’s bracingly stylized experiment. As his digital camera skitters among story lines – including Roberts’ magazine writer falling for the actor (Blair Underwood) she’s profiling – the director deftly orchestrates the dissonant refrains of emotionally challenged people searching for idealized love. Ranging from archly satirical to surprisingly affecting (David Hyde Pierce’s unhappily married hack screenwriter), Soderbergh’s film grabs you with show-offy style but holds you with real emotion.
