Synopsis: Within a year, the familiar boundaries of Spalding Gray's existence have been altered by betrayal, love, lust and loss. He suddenly marries his longtime companion, and divorces her just as quickly; he moves in with his girlfriend, Kathie, who bears him a son; and he learns, against all odds, to ski. But not even his mastery of the much-feared right turn can prepare him for the exhilarating experience of fatherhood. A brilliant improvisation with as many twists and turns as a double-diamond course, It's a Slippery Slope explores how one man survives a mid-life crisis by finding his balance on skis.
Review: Master monologist Spalding Gray is feeling like he's on the downhill side of life. For those who have followed his beautifully observed stories of his rather chaotic life through Swimming to Cambodia, Gray's Anatomy, and Monster in a Box, this latest episode has Gray dealing with his breakup with long-suffering girlfriend Renee and his sudden fathering of a child with a new woman. Along the way Gray ponders, in patented Gray style, what this means about his own aging, whether he's now living his life to provide material for his monologues, and how much it all resembles the peculiar plummeting rapture of a ski slope.
