This is the continuation of Don Hertzfeldt's short "Everything is Okay"--a lengthy absurdist take of a stick figure named Bill. The first film had to do with Bill's brain tumor and the weird, disjoint musings of Hertzfeldt as he narrates Bill's life. Here in "I Am So Proud of You" you hear all about Bill's extended family. None of it makes any sense at all though there is a recurring theme about Christianity (such as a feral family member who eats mud and says 'Bible', a religious zealot who fathers an illegitimate child and kills it and a grandmother that likes persecuting Jews). It's all very random and insane just like the earlier short and because of this, the two films work great together when they are combined with yet another short about Bill to make an ultra strange feature-length film. Weird and not for most folks--but great for Hertzfeldt fans.
