It provides little insight into the actor/writer/playwright/monologuist's life that Gray does not provide himself.

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.

Amalgam of clips (and nothing more) of the late comedic monologist Spalding Gray's performances, TV interview appearances and home movies is strictly for his fans.

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.

A tangible emotional aspect and lovely quality of And Everything is Going Fine is that of a friend trying to understand the process that led to a loved-one's suicide.

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.

touching, funny, tragic, heartening

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

December 6, 2010
Weaving performance and interview clips into an autobiographical collage on behalf of storyteller Spalding Gray, Steven Soderbergh delivers a poignant eulogy.

It's all quite deeply moving, and if you remain untouched by the end credits, you have some self-examination of your own to do.

What the director does best is move back and forth between funny stage anecdotes...to deadly serious discussion of the stories's underpinnings...

The late Spalding Gray is the subject of this conceptual documentary, which cleverly uses the actor-performer's own biographical monologues to tell his life story. It's so well-assembled that we really feel like we get to know him in the process.

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.

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.
