The Movie of the Year for Fans of Yelling and Profanity

Posted By on Thu, Sep 15, 2011 at 3:12 PM

I know that it seems like we're recommending another movie showing at the Loft every few days, and I get it, there are movies at the megaplexes with 3D and sharks and Ryan Gosling, etc. etc. There's only so much time for the arty stuff, with the foreign languages and the thinking. Listen, I paid actual money to see The A-Team in the theater. It was a matinee, but still. I hear the voice of the people with this stuff.

However, regardless of your general inclination about documentaries and such, you should really plan to see Shut Up Little Man in two weeks.

Here's how the Loft's website describes the film:


The most important audio recording released in the nineties wasn’t a collection of songs by a self-tortured alternative star. The most important recording released in the grunge era was entitled SHUT UP LITTLE MAN! It was a covert audio recording of two older drunken men living in a small flat in San Francisco, who spent their available free time yelling, screaming, hitting and generally abusing each other.

The phenomenon began in 1987 when Eddie and Mitch (two young punks from the Midwest), moved next door to Peter Haskett (a flamboyant gay man), and Raymond Huffman (a raging homophobe). This ultimate odd couple hated each other with raging abandon, and through the paper-thin walls their alcohol-fueled rants terrorized Eddie and Mitch. Fearing for their lives they began to tape record evidence of the insane goings on from next door.

I've spent an absurd amount of time listening to these recordings, so I'm a shoo-in for this subject, but really, this movie looks like a great time. Who doesn't enjoy wildly profane arguments and the stories behind them?
