The Always-Surreal Crispin Hellion Glover in Atlanta!

February 07, 2012 2:39 PM
Crispin Glover has a reputation for being a little, shall we say, odd. Most people know him for his role in the 80s classic Back to the Future in the role of George McFly, but since then, Glover has shown a penchant for playing eccentrics and oddballs. He portrayed Andy Warhol in Oliver Stone's 'The Doors,' the reclusive rat-lover Willard Stiles in the 2003 remake of 'Willard' and the mysterious "Thin Man" in the movie adaptation of 'Charlie's Angels.'

Something he is less known for are his films. His directorial debut was 2005's 'What Is It?' featuring a cast of actors with Down syndrome. His second film 'It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine!' was written by actor-writer Steven C. Stewart who suffers from cerebral palsy and is a psycho-sexual re-telling of Stewart's life from his point of view. Stewart also appeared in 'What Is It?' and died in 2001, just one month after principal filming for his film wrapped up. 'What Is It?' and 'It Is Fine' are the first two films in the "It" trilogy. The third film will be entitled 'It Is Mine.'

Glover will be presenting both films on Wednesday and Thursday of this week in Atlanta, Georgia at the The Plaza Theater. The evening will open with a one-hour dramatic narration of eight of his illustrated books entitled "The Big Slide Show." Glover has written between 15 and 20 illustrated novels, but only four have been published. Glover constructs the books by reusing old novels and other publications which have fallen into public domain. By rearranging the text, blacking out certain passages and adding his own prose, Glover essentially creates an entirely new story.

Following the slide show, both his films will be screened, followed by a Q&A and book signing. You can get tickets for both nights here and we highly recommend these events for anyone that enjoys a dark, twisted and surreal take on the world around us. While this is definitely not for the sensitive or easily disturbed, we guarantee it will be a night you will remember for a long, long time.
