IT IS FINE! EVERYTHING IS FINE.
2007 / DIR. DAVID BROTHERS AND CRISPIN HELLION GLOVER / 74 MINUTES
Crispin Glover's second film in the announced "It" trilogy is 2007's It is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE. Directed by Crispin Glover and David Brothers and adapted from a screenplay by Steven C. Stewart, it is filmed in the style of a 1970s murder mystery with Stewart in the lead role as the villain.
The film explores the psychosexual desires of Paul (played by Stewart) who is confined to a wheelchair due to cerebral palsy. There are a number of autobiographical elements in the film, such as Stewart's attraction to beautiful women with long hair and being forced to live in a nursing home for much of his life. Glover said:
"The film serves as a documentation of his fantasy enacted. [...] What is interesting to me about the naïve way he told this story, is that it is almost written as a detective murder genre story, and the feeling of his frustration is much more apparent than if it had been written as a straight autobiography."
"I am relieved to have gotten this film finally completed because ever since I read the screenplay I knew I had to produce the film and also produce it correctly. I would not have felt right about myself if I had not gotten Steve's film made [...] I feel It Is Fine. Everything Is Fine! will probably be the best film I will have anything to do with in my entire career."
Stephen C. Stewart died less than a month after shooting commenced from complications related to his condition. The next film in the "It" trilogy will be It Is Mine.
