“It’s like, you can’t have any fun, and if you do have fun, if you do your own thing, you’re considered crazy and should be in a mental institution. Now, that’s what I find creepy. I’m eccentric. I am not messed up.”
Glover has only shown the first two parts of, What Is It and It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine, of a proposed trilogy, at exclusive theatrical engagements, meaning that unless you live close to one of those theaters, you probably have not seen them. I have not. Though frustrating, as it’s been ten years since the release of What Is It, I appreciate that in the age of internet immediacy, Glover has chosen to hold something back. When I eventually see it, I imagine it’ll be akin to pre-internet days of waiting years just to hear a record. Sometimes the wait’s not worth it, other times the feeling is unforgettable.
