BEAVER TRILOGY, THE

The chance chronicle of one man’s obsession provides enough grist to inspire Sean Penn and Crispin Glover to dress in drag and belt out Olivia Newton-John’s “Please Don’t Keep Me Waiting.” One part documentary and two parts fictionalized reenactment of said documentary, this is an experiment so distinct, layered, and raw that it eludes an appropriate analogy. As a film, it’s mesmerizing. As an extract of human psyche, it’s debilitating. All together, it cannot — and should not — be ignored. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
