I remember catching this on cable one late night (it's not on DVD) and feeling like I'd fallen into another dimension. Directed by Trent Harris, The Beaver Trilogy is supposed to be a documentary, but let's just say it's loosely a documentary. It's about oddballs Trent met while on his travels, as well as Sean Penn and Crispin Glover acting like those oddballs. It just gives me a headache thinking about it, but this clip of Crispin as an obsessed Olivia Newton-John impersonator (that's right — he's impersonating an impersonator) singing "Please Don't Keep Me Waiting" is like the best of David Lynch. Spooky.
