BEAVER TRILOGY
Dir. Trent Harris, 1979, 1981, and 1985.
USA, 83 min.

"A rivetingly strange, multilayered inquiry into celebrity, obsession, and serendipity.  A.O. Scott, The New York Times

The Beaver Trilogy is a series of three pieces about the same subject: a young man from the small town of Beaver, UtaBh who is obsessed with Olivia Newton-John. The first piece,"The Beaver Kid" is a documentary. The second piece, "Beaver Kid 2" is a dramatic work based on the documentary. The third piece,"The Orkly Kid" is yet another dramatic work based on the documentary.

Real life and fiction intersect.

"Yes, this gets the full ten stars. It's plain as day that this fill is genius. The universe sent Trent Harris a young, wonderfully strange man one day and Harris caught him on tape, in all that true misfit glory that you just can't fake. Too bad it ended in tragedy for the young man, if only an alternate ending could be written for that fellow's story. The other two steps in the trilogy do retell the story, with Sean Penn and Crispin Glover in the roles of the young men, respectively. The world is expanded upon and the strangeness is contextualized by the retelling, giving us a broader glimpse into growing up weird in vanilla America. Recommended for anyone and everyone!  IMDB user afkeegan'
