DVD New Releases: June 19, 2012

And Everything Is Going Fine (2010) After the death in 2004 of American theater actor and monologist Spalding Gray, director Steven Soderbergh pieced together a narrative of Gray's life to create the documentary "And Everything Is Going Fine." Brilliantly and sensitively assembled entirely from footage of Gray, taken from interviews and one-man shows from throughout his career, it is a rich, full portrait an autobiography of sorts of a figure who was never less than candid but retained an air of mystery. In essence, this hilarious, moving, and revealing film has become Gray's final monologue. New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition. Formats: DVD, Blu-ray Disc. Extras: "Making of And Everything Is Going Fine," featuring director Steven Soderbergh, producer Kathie Russo, and editor Susan Littenberg; "Sex and Death to the Age 14," Spalding Gray's first monologue, created in 1979 and filmed in 1982; trailer; booklet featuring an essay by writer Nell Casey, editor of "The Journals of Spalding Gray." (The Criterion Collection).

The Big Fix (2011) Documentary recounts the events surrounding the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform in the Gulf of Mexico and paints a disturbing picture of the aftermath of the largest oil spill in America's history. "We never intended to make this movie," director Josh Tickell said. "It was only after going home, to my native Louisiana, and being dumbstruck by the true level of destruction and the downplaying of the situation, that we picked up our cameras and began to document this unparalleled man-made disaster." The film reveals the powerful political and corporate system that put profits over the health and long-term sustainability of people and the environment: No matter what the petroleum and government officials say, the oil is still coming ashore, the seafood industry has been wiped out, and many local people have become sick. Executive produced by Tim Robbins, Maggie Wachsberger and Peter Fonda. Associate producer Jason Mraz contributed a new song, "Collapsible Plans,"to the film. Formats: DVD, VOD, Digital Download,.

Gray's Anatomy (1997) One of the great raconteurs of stage and screen, Spalding Gray, came together with one of cinema's boldest image-makers, Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh, for "Gray's Anatomy," a spellbinding adaptation of Gray's 1993 monologue of the same name (co-written with Renee Shafransky). In it, Gray, with typical sardonic relish, chronicles his arduous journey through the diagnosis and treatment of a rare and alarming ocular condition. For the monologist, this experience occasioned a meditation on illness and mortality, medicine and metaphysics; for the filmmaker, it was a chance to experiment with ways of bringing his subject's words to brilliant, eye-opening life. New high definition digital transfer, supervised by director Steven Soderbergh, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition. Formats: DVD, Blu-ray Disc.
