Item Details

After the death in 2004 of American theater actor and monologist Spalding Gray, director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) pieced together a narrative of Gray's life to create the documentary AND EVERYTHING IS GOING FINE. Brilliantly and sensitively assembled entirely from footage of Gray, taken from interviews and one-man shows from throughout his career, it is a rich, full portrait, and autobiography of sorts, of a figure who was never less than candid but retained an air of mystery.

Spaulding Gray was much loved by some friends, colleagues and family; they created this piece to honor him after his suicide. In several interviews, he says that he doesn't want to be remembered as a "navel gazer" or some such, but as a man who poetically reported on the world around him. They tried to give him what he wished. Someone who is more a fan of the monologues would be in a better position to say whether they succeeded.
