Trivia

As of 2016, neither this nor the previous film in the trilogy, "What Is It?" have been commercially released on DVD, Bluray, streaming, or Video on Demand; Glover explained one of the reasons for this being is that by self-distributing the film (in conjunction with his slideshow and Q&A sessions), he has more direct say (and stake) in the profits, in hopes of it recouping his initial investment in either film. During his March 2016 screening of both films at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, he joked that with his current tour schedule, he might be able to recoup his investment in both films in about 20 years.

Erm...
25 July 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

I saw 'It is Fine! Everything is Fine' in February 2011 at one of Crispin Glover's live shows, which consisted of a frankly baffling slide show, a book signing and a post-film Q&A. As a massive fan of 'Back to the Future' and Crispin's performance in it I couldn't pass up the chance to meet the man himself and that part of the evening, as well as the fascinating Q&A, was great. He's an engaging and likable speaker, and I found his passion for his films, and his dedication to self-funding and touring with them to be inspiring.

The film itself, though... It's a tough one. It's difficult to separate the movie from the screening; I'd probably be a lot harder on it if I'd seen it at home without the surrounding experience. Technically it's rather crude, very repetitive, and the performances are terrible. Several people walked out of the screening and a drunk heckler was made to leave; I can see where they're coming from, but it's an interesting film in some ways, presenting a very personal, dark and twisted view of cerebral palsy, and staging it on empty, elongated sets that give the movie a woozy, dreamlike quality.

It's hard. It's a bad film that I kind of admired.
