I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO SHUT UP!! The World's Toughest Milkman Hits Vimeo October 14th. Check Out The Trailer Now!
Though likely too cult to ever really be considered iconic, Reid Fleming is nonetheless an enormously important figure in the history of Canadian underground comics. The world's toughest milkman, Fleming is a seething ball of rage (and dairy products) poised to go off at the slightest provocation. And director Charlie Tyrell is telling the story of Fleming and his creator, David Boswell, in the Jonathan Demme narrated short documentary I Thought I Told You To Shut Up!!

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.
The full doc is due to arrive on Vimeo October 14th but, in the meantime check out the official site for more info and take a look at the trailer below!
