When artists die, you hope someone curates a brilliant retrospective of his work. Steven Soderberg has taken on that role for making the film version of Spalding Gray's life. Although there are intimations about his suicide, Soderberg never tells you at the end of the movie that Gray killed himself at age 62 by jumping off the Staten Island Ferry in the winter. There were other suicides in his family, most notably his mother's, a subject Gray handled in his film MONSTER IN THE BOX. He had threatened to commit suicide before he did it. The primary motivating force for the suicide was that he had been in a car collision while visiting Ireland which had turned him into a cripple and left him with a lot of pain. He could walk with leg braces but it was probably never going to improve beyond that. Although many people could handle this, Gray had always been melancholic and this life circumstance pushed him over the edge.

But he left a wonderful legacy of films based on his performances onstage of monologues, which everyone should see. They are wonderfully comic and incredibly true to the foibles of living a full life. You see many of these performances in this film plus get him in other footage and interviews which were never present in the films.

Another thing that is covered here is his personal life in great detail. It was very messy and I am inclined to believe that led as much into his suicide as his physical injury. His long time partner, Renee, also his producer, split with him because he had an affair with another woman and that other woman became pregnant. He wanted the other woman to have an abortion but she wouldn't and shortly thereafter Gray found himself with a family. In the film you see him living family life and he does not look cut out for it at all.

It is good to see the culmination of Spalding Gray's life's work. It is all about Spalding and that is wonderful. The only criticism I have is if a few more people could have spoken about him that would've completed The film for me.

Very interesting and important for better understanding Spaulding Gray's evolution, body of work, and suicide.
The technique of splicing together segments from the same monologue, but from very different points in his career, was unusual and touching.
