Review of Gray's Anatomy
by Justin Purwitsky
Posted on June 21st, 2020
Positive 9
Overall Rating
i am a huge fan of swimming to cambodia. i loved it! i didn't think it could get much better than that when it comes to single man performance pieces that are essentially a very long monologue. i was wrong, it does get better. case in point; gray's anatomy. here we have the late great spalding gray giving another of his famous monologues, this time about the lengths he goes to avoid an eye operation. this time it is directed by steven soderbergh who once again has made something completely different to what he has made before. mr. gray is just amazing at speaking and honestly i could listen to him talk for hours on end. his story and stories within this story are so amusing, funny and insane it is almost hard to believe but he tells it with such conviction you know they are true. i honestly can't believe someone would go through all these lengths instead of a 15 minute eye op but then if he didn't then we wouldn't have this wonderful monologue to listen to. soderbergh's direction is top notch and unlike swimming to cambodia he actual makes the piece more cinematic. he doesn't shoot in front of an audience and the sets and backgrounds change to reflect the current scene of the story we are watching. well directed, well edited and well shot the visuals work really well together to enhance the story. is this better than swimming to cambodia? i don't think so but in reality it might just be. at the very least it is just as good. both are so good that i want to watch them again. right now! (i feel like i need to adjust my rating for swimming to cambodia as it seems to low but it is what it is i guess).
