Storyline

In 1987 San Francisco, Eddie Lee Sausage and Mitch Deprey began recording the squabbles of their stranger than fiction neighbors, the bigoted Raymond Huffman and the out and proud Peter Haskett. The recital of the pair's outrageous reality quickly took on a life of its own. This darkly funny documentary chronicles the history of Raymond and Peter, as well as what happened to former slackers Eddie and Mitch, who paint a picture of not only their outrageous neighbors, but also of San Francisco's Lower Haight neighborhood in the late 1980s. Interviews with others who were influenced by the recordings document their broad influence on a variety of artists, near and far. Written by TrivWhiz

The question is...
16 March 2020 | by The_Boxing_CatSee all my reviews

Wow would these two wanna be artists feel if someone taped them and then made money off of their intimate moments? They actually think they had the right to exploit these poor people. It's certainly one thing to do it when you're fresh out of college, but it speaks to the character, or lack there of, to continue when they are now aging grown men!

Will they ever understand that this film exposes THEM for what they really are?
