Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 237: Tue Aug 25

It is Fine. Everything is Fine (Glover, 2007): ICA Cinema, 7.45pm



Crispin Glover is back for his famous Big Slide Show plus a screening of the second part of the "It" trilogy, titled 'It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine!' This comes highly recommended by colleagues at the Guardian and all those who went the last time the actor was in town and, having looked at some of Glover's work on YouTube, I am certain it will be like nothing else on offer in London tonight and as such well worth investigating. Apparently, Glover has said he has previously stayed until 4am to finish off his Q&A's! Here is Guardian film editor Catherine Shoard's interview with the actor/director.

Check this out, the trailer for tonight's movie. And this. Or even this.


The ICA introduction to tonight's show:

Crispin Glover will perform Crispin Hellion Glover's Big Slide Show part 2, a one hour dramatic narration of eight different profusely illustrated books. The images from the books are projected behind Mr. Glover during his performance.

There will then be a screening of It Is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE. This film goes into uncharted cinematic territory with screenwriter Steven C. Stewart starring in this semi-autobiographical, psycho-sexual tale about a man with severe cerebral palsy and a fetish for girls with long hair.

Part horror film, part exploitation picture and part documentary of a man who cannot express his sexuality in the way he desires, this fantastical and often humorous tale is told completely from Stewart’s actual point of view – that of someone who has lived for years watching people do things he will never be able to do. Here, Stewart’s character is something of a ladykiller, seducing a troubled, recently divorced mother, her teenage daughter and any number of other women he encounters along the way.

There will be a Q&A with Crispin Glover following the screening.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
