Equally funny, unnerving and sad, this traverses from juvenile antics to a cutting self-examination of how we are reacting to Ray and Peter's stolen moments. Bate asks all the necessary questions in this surprisingly affecting documentary. Though the recordings in question were made on cassette tapes, this tale remains highly relevant in this digital age. Technology merely amplifies our human faults
Uproariously funny documentary of 2 young men, who move into an apartment block in San Francisco, only to find they live next door to 2 constant quarreling, very loud drunks. One a queer hater, the other, a queer. The boys then decide to record their neighbors screaming antics, and share the tapes among a few friends, only to find that their neighbors have now become underground American icons.
Heads up to the director who not only extracted solid gold from a thin premise but also made it engaging and wasn't afraid to show the ugliness of the people profiting from the ugliness. Very entertaining but also pretty fucking sad.
