And Everything Is Going Fine

From the first time he performed Swimming to Cambodia -- the one-man account of his experience of making the 1984 film The Killing Fields -- Spalding Gray made the art of the monologue his own. Drawing unstintingly on the most intimate aspects of his own life, his shows were vibrant, hilarious and moving. His death came tragically early, in 2004; this compilation of interview and performance footage nails his idiosyncratic and irreplaceable brilliance.

Reviews & Comments

When he first appears in “And Everything Is Going Fine,’’ the late performance artist Spalding Gray is a wavy image. His plaid shirt appears to be creating a moiré effect with old video footage. If you look closer, so does the rest of him. He sits behind a desk and tells a story about his family’s celebrating the end of the Second World War. Gray is behind that desk for much of this eerie, affectionate documentary that Steven Soderbergh has constructed from live performances, television interviews, and home movies. It’s the visual equivalent of a book of letters. In this case, Soderbergh’s movie demonstrates that Gray’s most significant correspondence was with an audience.
