Better when you hear the explanation of what the heck you just saw, but points off for creepy graphic sex scenes between many girls and a cerebral palsy man. Yikes.

At first, this could come off as handicap porn; however, I had the privilege of seeing this in the theater while Crispin Glover was in town. Hearing from him about the making of the film and the inspiration behind Steven Stewart's screenplay (who was also in the lead role) shed's a whole new light on the film. It becomes an exploration in to different aspects of the disabled. Instead of always being a good guy, what if the handicapped person was the villain instead? It was also intriguing to hear Crispin tell that when they were making it, they viewed it from the perspective that no one would be able to understand Steven's character even though all of the beautiful women he interacted with understood him perfectly. That aspect, lends itself well to the portrayal of the events as a fantasy, albeit a dark one.

This is the middle piece of what is supposed to be a trilogy. The script was written by Steven Stewart, who also plays the title character. Which would be great except, and I'll be blunt here--Stewart didn't really write a compelling narrative. A man with cerebal palsey has sex with, and then proceeds to kill, numerous interchangeable women. Nobody's character is really developed enough to really get involved in the story. I'm still curious to see what Crispin Glover does with the final installment of this trilogy, but I hope he returns more to the aesthetic and tone of "What Is It?"

Magnificent. More like this please. Crispin is a visionary. Go see this when it comes to your town!!

Stewart writes from a sad and forgotten fantasy place and Glover flat out refuses to compromise his vision. Frank and inspiring.

The second entry in Crispin Glover's IT trilogy is disturbing, off-putting, surreal, heartbreaking, and, at times, beautiful. It recalls both the midnight cinema of David Lynch, and the made-for-tv crime dramas of the '70s. Not for everyone, but definitely recommended.
