When I heard the This American Life episode about the weird documentary called The Beaver Trilogy, which played at Sundance in 2001, I immediately tried to get it on Netflix or Amazon. I was sorely vexed to learn that the film was not available for any price.
Today, Gord emailed me to let me know "some kind soul has recently posted the Beaver Trilogy in several YouTube snippets. From the kid to Sean Penn to Crispin Glover (before they were *name* guys)."

My wife and I heard the 'This American Life' episode and decided we HAD to see this movie! I emailed Trent Harris and he said he had a couple of the original DVD's that were sent to the film festivals, and would sell one for $25 shipped. We got it a few days ago and watched it immediately.
