Bang Bang #

Released 2/11/1971

Description: This endearingly crazy 1971 Brazilian movie defies classification: its Portuguese game (Bangue bangue) refers to movies we'd probably call "shoot-'em-ups," director Andrea Tonacci named it a "Maoist detective comedy," yet American audiences would probably consider it an experimental film. The anonymous urban protagonist experiences a series of absurd situations--including a crazy cab ride, an encounter with a wacky criminal gang, and lots of gunplay--but they're stripped of any storyline that might explain them and infused with a special anarchic energy, eventually suggesting our real animal nature. As with Godard, it's partly an homage to category filmmaking (there's singing and dancing, a tiny sex, and lots of violence), but what really powers the movie is Tonacci's inventive camera.

The Orkly Kid Reviews:

"The Orkly Kid" is a high quality short film, establishing a powerful sense of storytelling and characterization, and just barely avoiding becoming heavy-handed in revealing what it's protagonist REALLY wants. Crispin Glover gives a quirky, charming, and ultimately touching performance in the lead role.While director Trant Harris' visual style is not especially slick, innovative or accomplished, he says his storyline very well, and the lack of technical razzle-dazzle now becomes more of a strength than a weakness. "The Orkly Kid" is not a excellent film. An mentioned before, it comes close to being massive handed in it's subtext. But it is a memorable, constructive and well said storyline that deserves to be seen.


The gloriously gaga opening stage expertly sets the tone for the incredible, jaw-dropping, incessant and often excruciatingly riotous eccentricity to come: A silhouetted nighttime profile shot of chronically kooky and uncompromising consummate flake thesp Crispin Glover, wearing a flowing blonde wig, wind whipping his hair about in undulating waves, stands astride a mountaintop lip-syncing to Olivia Newton-John's forlorn pop ballad "Please Don't Hold Me Waiting"! You see, Crispin's an awkward, ungainly, socially maladjusted jerkwater burg misfit with a secret hardcore infatuation with Olivia and her music, a closet fetish that's so extreme that Crispin now dresses, acts, and -- oh gaa-wd! -- even sings just like Olivia. Worse yet, Glover even has a "Xanadu" poster on his bedroom wall! Crispin, after much fretting, decides to come out about his Olivia hang-up to the burg's stuffy, conservative, stubbornly set in their methods square citizens by impersonating Olivia -- he's got the wig on, plus bright red lipstick and black eyeliner! -- and belting out one of her tunes in a shrill, scratchy, piercing soprano wail at a local talent present that's going to be broadcast on television.A very barbed and caustically funny 35 minute American Movie Institute student film project, "The Orkly Kid" doesn't pull any punches with its revealing exposure and mordant ridicule of the hidebound, close-minded, oppressively staid toe-the-line conformist mindset that's a rigid cornerstone of tiny city America ("This town's enough to drive a boy nuts," Glover moans at one point), an uptight sensibility which leads to xenophobia and a gross inability to either tolerate or appreciate anyone courageous enough to break away from the restrictive conventional mold. Moreover, the movie has the admirable guts to equate conformity with repressiveness, depicting Glover's amiable nonconformist oddball as the only person in the picture who's easygoing and enjoys life while the straight townies are sour, cranky and often down in the dumps unhappy frumps. Glover delivers a perfectly manic performance as the endearingly gonzo main character, with solid help from Stefan ("Fear No Evil") Arngrim as his sole mate (Crispin tries unsuccessfully to have Arngrim place on a gorilla suit and carry him off scene after he's done with his number!), the ever-adorable Elizabeth ("Valley Girl") Everyday as a tarty diner waitress, and Courtney ("Children of the Corn") Gains as a local bullying hick. Glover and fellow marvelously idiosyncratic celluloid quirkmeister writer/director Trent Harris reteamed for the equally amusing and abrasive "Rubin and Ed."


I just saw this the another night. To test to clarify, this is 3 short films. The first one is, I believe, current video footage of the Beaver Kid, the topics of the 3 films. The second film, is Sean Penn, doing his impression, almost stage for scene, of the Beaver Kid. The third is the most movie-like of the three, starring Crispin Glover as the Beaver Child (Orkly Kid?).Hilarious. The first is a riot in itself. Both that follow are great. There are a lot of laughs, and it's cute dark comedy, so look out. Crispin Glover's performance in the 3rd is excellent. It's so talented, he has the Beaver man down pat.
