An hilarious glimpse inside the wacky world of two misfit friends, an '"Odd Couple" of the morbid kind. Drunk, delusional, demented, this Oscar and Felix-type duo will have you in stitches while shaking your head wondering "why are these two roommates?" It's a must see if you like sick humor and human nature.

One of the most hilarious and interesting documentaries I ever saw! This film is a must see for everyone!

Weaves along the uncomfortable line between fascinating, and mean spiritedness. Insightful in the end, but leaves you more uneasy than inspired by any claimed artistic merit.

Interesting story but you really feel bad for the neighbours being made a joke and a cash cow for two jerks who recorded them without their permission. But they, it's for art..... yeah right.

An interesting documentary that made me laugh. Its funny how today this exact thing is all over the internet and so common, though seeing it go "viral" though cassette tape was pretty cool. Seeing the actual guy get interviewed who had no idea that this was a phenomenon was kind of sad but interesting to watch none the less.

A great story of 1980s recordings of drunken quarrelings between San Francisco neighbors, and the phenomenon resulting from tape traders in the 1990s, and the hunt to find the original quarrelers in the 2000s.

I would have liked to see more about the struggle to make the 3 different movies, that could be a whole doc in itself.
½ February 21, 2014
Mildly amusing documentary that raises a number of interesting topics (including voyeurism, privacy, and art vs. profitability issues), but does little or nothing with them. Worst of all, it never demonstrates why these recordings were so funny/popular in the first place. They come off as a "you had to be there" moments.

Fun documentary about a strange subject. They lay out the story of the Shut Up Little Man phenomenon succinctly. Who knew it was that big?

story of voyeurism and humanity in surreptitiously recorded lives

If you enjoy watching greedy little men trying to exploit the broken lives of others then this one is for you. Otherwise don't waste your time.

Record this surreptitiously, enjoy the crazy human condition it reveals, then make a tape of it an pass it along to your friends.

/C+/ This documentary spends a lot of time telling us that the subject matter is funny. Interesting story, but the partial focus on the recorders isn't necessary or interesting.

Sad state of affairs.

Started out liking it, but it dawns on you that the two "tapers" are gigantic assholes.

An OK, light documentary. I'd recommend "Winnebago Man" as a similar & better doc.
½ January 1, 2013
Fascinating documentary on an underground sensation and the peek into the human condition it unexpectedly exposed.
½ December 24, 2012
Maybe I'm being too hard on this film by rating it at 2.5 stars because I absolutely grew to despise the two frat-like boys who opportunistically have profited off of others' PRIVATE misery. For a much more humane and original handling of similar subject matter (viral media), turn to Winnebago Man.

Great first hour, then it dissolves into reality TV.
