About the Movie

When two friends tape record their violently noisy neighbors, they accidentally create one of the first 'viral' pop-culture sensations. Blurring the lines between art and exploitation, SHUT UP LITTLE MAN is a darkly comic modern fable.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Makes the "Shut Up" phenomenon feel as if it meant something, unlike the here-this-morning, gone-this-afternoon viral sensations of today. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Sep 15, 2011

Fresh: Alternately hilarious and discomfiting, and finally rather poignant. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Aug 23, 2011

Rotten: Goes from funny to not funny in about the length of time it takes for the lawyers to get involved. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Sep 15, 2011

Fresh: The tapes are great. More than just a flophouse Punch and Judy show, the Raymond vs. Peter dustups elevate cruel bickering to a ritual through which we live life's pain. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Sep 13, 2011

Bloody brilliant

The best and weirdest doco about people you'll see this year


So funny!

Well made doco, sad lives these drunks lived and

Not fair that the guys that bugged them have profited from illegally obtained recordings, nothing funny here actually quite sad but as documentaries go this one is expertly told and well made by a truly talented director.
