Synopsis

Critics reviews

Movie lovers coming fresh to Gray’s infinitely surprising, sometimes heartbreaking work should think of him like a fusion of André Gregory and Wallace Shawn from My Dinner With André. Like Gregory, he’s open to the most unnerving experiences… But Gray also has a Wally Shawn side that’s pragmatic and down-to-earth. (He finally does submit to surgery.) The tension between the two halves gives his performances their spring.

Typically engrossing and hilarious, it nonetheless left a faintly sour taste in my mouth; too many of Gray’s “real-life” adventures in this one seem to have been undertaken expressly in order to provide him with suitably wacky monologue material. If he continues in this vein, I’d like to see him tackle the mundane next time out. In other words, live first, then write.
