Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure

Years ago, two college roommates began to surreptitiously record the epic, ear-shattering fights between their neighbors, two elderly San Francisco drunks named Peter and Ray. The tapes became something of an underground art sensation, passed around hipster parties for decades, inspiring comic strips, plays and puppet shows. Now comes a documentary, tracing the history of the recordings and trying to find out what ever happened to the eternally angry Peter and Ray. It's hard to shake the exploitative nature of the subject (particularly since it more-or-less inspired a generation of Jerky Boys and Crank Yankers), yet there's something hideously compelling about the whole tawdry affair. 90 minutes
