Eddie Lee and Mitchell D’s audio vérité recordings of Peter and Raymond has been used in pop culture over the last 20 years in music, comics and film. This documentary follows the Eddie Lee and Mitchell D as they take us through how this whole phenomenon was born and what is has turned into today. The interviews are really interesting and we even have rare interview Peter himself back in 1993. If you are fan of where these recordings came from and their background leading to today, this is a very interesting film.

The recordings made by Eddie Lee Sausage and Mitchell D. where done back in the last 80’s when they discovered that their neighbors, Peter Haskett and Raymond Huffman, who at the time were constantly  arguing and Peter was often screaming “shut up, little man!” at Ray. If you have never heard these recordings, it is sure to impact you more than others who have been listening for years. Still though, the film is so well done that it will still make these recording feels fresh and document them well.

I was hoping for decent special features with this DVD and I was definitely impressed. There is an interesting extended interview with Ivan Brunetti, Peter Haskett and Raymond Huffman roommate. There is a shit load of deleted/extended scenes. Some of them are decent and some feel wasted. If you want some information on the behind the scenes about this documentary, you will be happy with the featurette that is included as well. Overall if you are looking for a good laugh, this DVD is a no-brainer.
