While promoting The Informant! today in Toronto, Steven Soderbergh casually announced he had finished his documentary about the late writer and monologist Spalding Gray. Not that it didn't take a while: "Because I've never really made a documentary before and I didn't want it to be like other documentaries [...], there was a lot of trial and error about what form it should take, and now I'm really happy with it." Soderbergh went on to say the film compiles footage of Gray as a sort of "new monologue in a way," adding that he's taking the film to the Slamdance Film Festival for a premiere next January. Why wait? Bust it out in Canada! Willem Dafoe might appreciate the competition. [First Showing]
