WhatIsIt

What Is It?

Drama / 2005 / US / 72 minutes / Format: 35mm
Director: Crispin Glover
Print Source: Crispin Glover

Known for creating many memorable, incredibly quirky characters onscreen as an actor, Glover’s first effort as a director will not disappoint fans of his offbeat sensibilities and eccentric taste. Featuring a cast largely comprised of actors with Down’s Syndrome, the film is not about Down’s Syndrome. Glover describes it as “Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are snails, salt, a pipe and how to get home as tormented by an hubristic racist inner psyche.” In addition to writing and directing What Is It?, Glover also appears in the film in the role of “Dueling Demi-God Auteur and The young man’s inner psyche.” Actress Fairuza Balk voices one of the snails.
