Bill's universe expands...
25 October 2008 | by jdierin1See all my reviews

Those who have been affected by "Everything Will Be OK"'s deft balancing of the absurd, surreal, heartbreaking and quietly devastating will be blown away by "I am so proud of you," which is easily Hertzfeldt's best work. Plot-wise, we learn more about Bill's family history and strange relatives, and a co-worker's comments about genetics, time and predestination throw Bill's universe -- or at least the film's non-lineal portrayal of it -- into major flux. There is a strong sense of pathos running throughout, and at times the humor is so dark that it may or may not have been intended to be read as such--but that might be an irrelevant distinction. Watching Hertzfeldt develop into a true artist has been one of the greatest cinematic pleasures of the last decade, and "I am so proud of you" continues that trend. If you are fortunate enough to have the chance to see the sole copy of it that is currently circulating the country along with Hertzfeldt, don't pass it up. Hopefully we'll get part three of the trilogy soon...
