Consensus: Even if And Everything Is Going Fine isn't one of Soderbergh's more commercial efforts, this collection of judiciously edited performance footage of the late monologist Spalding Gray gave the director a chance to show a rarely-seen side of his artistry.

Soderbergh's editing neatly duplicates Gray's methods, showing us how memory treats the same material at different stages in a life, applying those different coats and shades of lacquer.

This is not a standard bio-documentary. It is the artist giving us a guided tour of himself, through a mosaic of clips from his shows and TV interviews, craftily assembled by Soderbergh.

it's as painful to listen to and watch as it is astonishing that I should feel this kind of connection to someone I never met, and never will.

This was obviously a labor of love for Soderbergh, and a fitting memorial to the artist.

Boston Globe

You're left with as rich a sense of this man as you would in a more typical work of nonfiction. But the film's deceptive, meticulous editing also reveals that Gray's odd ambition met a cultural moment in which it could take root and thrive.

Movie Metropolis

It's all quite deeply moving, and if you remain untouched by the end credits, you have some self-examination of your own to do.

Washington Post

A brilliantly conceived documentary, one with uncommon respect for -- and understanding of -- its subject's life and art.

Think of the film as Gray's final monologue.

James Kendrick
Q Network Film Desk

allows Gray to speak of his life and its significance entirely in his own words without any intrusive talking heads or academic pontification
