Critic Reviews for The Beaver Trilogy
A pervasive sense of visual madness ferments as the idea of originality collapses. This is the same kind of circularity that drives characters in Roman Polanski movies bonkers.
'...toys with issues of spectatorship so brilliantly, that you emerge having learnt a lot about fiction, documentary, and yourself.'
Audience Reviews for The Beaver Trilogy
I suppose that this is a part documentary as the first segment profiles a young man attempting to be dramatic into a camera. Sean Penn and Crispin Glover try to recreate the scene many years later with varying degrees of success. More special interest than anything worth remembering.
Glover's is heartbreaking, the original is a stream of laughter, and Penn's is just a stupid mimic of the original.
