Matthew Bate’s Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure has shown at a number of festivals this year after premiering at Sundance, but I’ve managed to miss it time and again. The film’s newly-released first trailer makes me feel pretty damn bad about that. Drawing on a conceit that almost anyone can relate to, at least on the outset, the documentary looks to shift into some strange and interesting new territories. The film tells the story of Eddie and Mitch, two regular dudes who clearly liked to party, and the crappy apartment they moved into back in ’80s San Francisco. As is typically the case with less-than-stellar living situations, the boys found out within mere minutes of signing their lease that they had more to deal with than just the hideous paint in their new “shithole,” they had a couple of whacked-out neighbors who would occasionally get loud. And by “occasionally,” I mean constantly, and by “get loud,” I mean that it’s amazing that their knock-down, drag-out verbal assaults didn’t ever crumble those disgusting pink walls.
