Gray's Anatomy (Criterion Collection)
One of the great raconteurs of stage and screen, Spalding Gray (SWIMMING TO CAMBODIA), came together with one of cinema's boldest image-makers, Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh (TRAFFIC), for GRAY'S ANATOMY, a spellbinding adaptation of Gray's 1993 monologue of the same name (co written with Renie Shafransky). in it, Gray, with typical sardonic relish, chronicles his arduous journey through the diagnosis an d treatment of a rare and alarming ocular condition. For the monologist, this experience occasioned a meditation on illness and mortality, medicine and metaphysics; for the filmmaker, it was a chance to experiment with ways of bringing his subject's words to brilliant, eye-opening life.
