Soderbergh's editing neatly duplicates Gray's methods, showing us how memory treats the same material at different stages in a life, applying those different coats and shades of lacquer.

This was obviously a labor of love for Soderbergh, and a fitting memorial to the artist.

A brilliantly conceived documentary, one with uncommon respect for -- and understanding of -- its subject's life and art.

This is not a standard bio-documentary. It is the artist giving us a guided tour of himself, through a mosaic of clips from his shows and TV interviews, craftily assembled by Soderbergh.

You're left with as rich a sense of this man as you would in a more typical work of nonfiction. But the film's deceptive, meticulous editing also reveals that Gray's odd ambition met a cultural moment in which it could take root and thrive.

Spalding Gray's new film, "And Everything Is Going Fine," is 89 minutes long. What a coincidence! That's exactly 89 more minutes of Spalding Gray than I can stand.

Soderbergh imposes a shape until the film begins to feel less like puzzle pieces in search of their place and more like one seamless picture: with this collage of the artist's past work, he's created an entirely new final monologue for Gray.

Among other things, a tour de force of smart and sensitive editing.

It's ultimately a celebration of Gray's irrepressible lust for life and bottomless curiosity about the strange and beautiful world around him. It does justice to a subject who made his life and death works of art.

You still leave hoping he ultimately found peace and enlightenment, two things he graciously gave to those of us who hung on his every word.

Seen as his final monologue, the film is both an invaluable portfolio of his talent, and a tribute rendered in the style of its subject.
