US SciFi 1990s (?) Youngish man can relocate his consciousness into other, distant, people

No idea who was acting in the movie, but I seem to recall the participants seemed to be young professionals in then-present day U.S.

I don't recall whether this option of consciousness-transfer was limited to the main protagonist or available throughout the society envisaged in the scenario.

Little more to add, except that it seemed like a neat idea.

If it ever became possible in reality (unlikely without seriously deep WWW-brain interaction) it would enable intiguing possibilities. I recall emailing a thoughtful friend about the film, but it was too long ago to retrieve the email.
