Director Crispin Glover teams with screenwriter Steven C. Stewart for this surreal semi-autobiographical feature detailing cerebral palsy sufferer Stewart's remarkable life and many love affairs. A semi-sequel to Glover's shocking directorial debut, What Is It? (2005), It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine opens with Stewart lying helplessly on the hospital floor. As he is being transported back to his bed, Stewart embarks on an inward journey in which his suave charm proves irresistible to the ladies.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's one of the most queasy-making and confrontational films of the year, in which a deliberately artless presentation...takes the sting out of some extremely unruly content."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"The movie is daring, original and aimed at sophisticated moviegoers."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Entirely set-bound and featuring dramatic lighting, deep shadows and such archaic effects as rear projection, the film has the look and feel of an old Hollywood movie -- but there's never been a film quite like this one."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Imagine snuff porn as produced by the Special Olympics. That is the vision of Crispin Glover."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine. feels genuinely sui generis; Glover has said it's the best film of his career. Whatever, McFly. But he's not far off."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Time Out New York
"The statement Stewart makes in his script-- that handicapped people can not only be as sensitive as everyone else, but just as horrible -- is made eloquent, if bizarre, via Glover and Brothers' otherworldy vision."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"IT IS FINE! allows an outsider's plight to define the mood and give significance to the art. Yet it's hard to take that endeavor seriously when the movie operates under the guise of exploitation."
‑ Eric Kohn, New York Press
"Crispin Hellion Glover's planned trilogy of blatant weirdness continues with a second installment, It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine."
‑ Laura Kern, New York Times
"Any response to this film is aggressively subjective...Did I enjoy the film? I did not."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"To say the film is weird would be cliché, it's way beyond that the film drew laughs and gasps from the audience. The odd thing about it all -- it works."
‑ Chris Gore, Film Threat
