    As with The Family Jewels, it deserves another viewing before consensus, but interesting to watch Chris devolve into the Jerry/Clown character over the course of the film, which features what is probably Jerry's most involved direction (not just at the level of cinematography, blocking, etc.; but I also mean the performances he manages to get out of everyone that isn't himself, with Leigh being especially good) and is surely the film of his which most greatly displaces its emotional/narrative energies…

    And Everything Is Going Fine

    I went into this totally unfamiliar with Spalding Gray. By the end of it, I felt like I had known him for years. Definitely worth my time, and everyone else's.
