CRISPIN HELLION GLOVER’S BIG SLIDE SHOW PART 2 “It is fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE.”

Crispin Glover’s uniquely personal and singular roadshow,The Big Slideshow, precedes screenings of his films. Part storytime and part hypnotic performance art, it is described by the artist as a “one-hour dramatic narration of eight different profusely illustrated books [he has] made over the years,” delivered with the intensity of a revival tent preacher. Afterward, Mr. Glover will be on hand for a Q&A and book signing.

It is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE.

2007, dir. Crispin Glover and David Brothers

With Margit Carstensen, Steven C. Stewart, Carrie Szlasa
74 min

VIEW TRAILER

Written by the film’s lead actor, Steven C. Stewart (who appeared in What Is it?), It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine. is centered around the psycho-sexual fantasies of a man with cerebral palsy who has a fetish for girls with long hair. Unable to express his desires in reality, Stewart’s character expresses the twisted, murderous fantasy of someone driven over the edge by frustration, misunderstanding, and neglect. Glover and co-director David Brothers take great pains to adapt Stewart’s point of view, offering a direct encounter with a handicapped person never before attempted on screen. According to Crispin Glover, Stewart “wanted to show that handicapped people are human, sexual and can be horrible. He also states that “It is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE. will probably be the best film he has anything to do with in his entire career. Crispin Glover and his co-director David Brothers wanted to bring Stewart’s story to the screen.

What Is It?

2005, dir. Crispin Glover
With Michael Blevis, Carlos Richardson, Crispin Glover
82 min.

VIEW TRAILER

A labor of love more than nine years in the making, What Is It? is an unsettling, surreal, and thought-provoking head-trip that prompts many more questions than the film’s title alone. A cinematic nightmare of sorts, Glover populates his film with various taboos that have long been censored or untouched by corporate-funded studios. Many of the actors have Down syndrome, one has cerebral palsy, and others are masked pornographic actresses. There are snails, a man in blackface, and Mr. Glover stalking around in long hair and a fur coat, credited as “Dueling Demi-God Auteur/The Young Man’s Inner Psyche and Id.” What is it, indeed.
