Movie Info

Director Crispin Glover teams with screenwriter Steven C. Stewart for this surreal semi-autobiographical feature detailing cerebral palsy sufferer Stewart's remarkable life and many love affairs. A semi-sequel to Glover's shocking directorial debut, What Is It? (2005), It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine opens with Stewart lying helplessly on the hospital floor. As he is being transported back to his bed, Stewart embarks on an inward journey in which his suave charm proves irresistible to the ladies. Though his imaginary sexual conquests allow Stewart a welcome opportunity to live out his many erotic fantasies, the unshakable frustration of being an eternal outcast soon causes his actions to take an unexpectedly dark turn. It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine made its world premiere at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine.

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

It's one of the most queasy-making and confrontational films of the year, in which a deliberately artless presentation...takes the sting out of some extremely unruly content.

The movie is daring, original and aimed at sophisticated moviegoers.

The statement Stewart makes in his script-- that handicapped people can not only be as sensitive as everyone else, but just as horrible -- is made eloquent, if bizarre, via Glover and Brothers' otherworldy vision.

Any response to this film is aggressively subjective...Did I enjoy the film? I did not.

Entirely set-bound and featuring dramatic lighting, deep shadows and such archaic effects as rear projection, the film has the look and feel of an old Hollywood movie -- but there's never been a film quite like this one.

Audience Reviews for It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine.

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.
