Beaver Trilogy is a series of three pieces about the same subject, a young man from the small town of Beaver, Utah who is ob­sessed with Olivia Newton John. The first piece, The Beaver Kid is a doc­u­men­tary about Dick Grif­fiths (Groovin’ Gary) and his Olivia fas­ci­na­tion. The second piece, Bea­ver Kid 2 is a drama based on the doc­u­men­tary with Sean Penn playing the part of Dick Grif­fiths. The third piece, The Orkly Kid is yet another dramatic work based on the doc­u­men­tary, this time with Crispin Glov­er in the lead.

Plays with: 

Heavy Metal Parking Lot
Dir. Jeff Krulik, John Heyn
1986, USA, 16 min
A look at the wild scene outside a Judas Priest concert.

Reviews

What could have easily been just another exploitation documentary doubles back on itself and becomes self critical in its first re-evaluation, then dramatically triumphant in its final act.
- Letterboxd
Groovin' Gary is one of those subjects like Mark Borchardt or Timothy Treadwell who can't be presented to an audience without risk of seeming exploitative or mocking. Their passions burn absurdly bright, and one can choose to either see that as beautiful and tragic or hilarious and foolish. Or maybe all of the above.
