It's not a documentary, notes Denver Film Society programmer Keith Garcia of Soderbergh's latest.He's created a performance piece on a par with one of Spalding Gray's performances, using archival footage. He worked with Gray's widow, amassing stuff, and what happens is that it actually becomes a new, unpublished Spalding Gray piece. As a tribute to him, it's the perfect way anyone could have handled it. It's very loving and channels his voice throughout in a way that really speaks to the fans. It gives us the closure we didn't get when he died.
And Everything Is Going Fine runs through January 6 at the FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Avenue; admission is $7 to $9.75. For more information, go to www.denverfilm.org or call 303-595-FILM.
