I Thought I Told You To Shut Up!

Großartige Kurzdoku von Charlie Tyrell über David Boswell und seinen unwahrscheinlichen 70er-Jahre Comix-Helden Reid Fleming, „the World’s Toughest Milkman“, der damals zu einer Pre-Internet-Meme im Underground wurde. Die Stimme aus dem Off stammt von Jonathan Demme (Stop Making Sense, Schweigen der Lämmer).

In the late seventies David Boswell created Reid Fleming, the World’s Toughest Milkman, a comic book anti-hero and counter culture icon. By the following decade, Warner Brothers was preparing a Hollywood feature film. Now, over 30 years later, the character is still mired in contractual limbo, or development hell. Narrated by Academy Award-Winner Jonathan Demme (Dir. The Silence of the Lambs, Stop Making Sense), I Thought I Told You To Shut Up!! combines stop motion animations with interviews from Boswell, his Hollywood friends, and fans as they discuss the enduring appeal of the World’s Toughest Milkman.
