Length: Approx. 15 minutes
An official selection of SXSW, Hot Docs, Festival du Cannes (Short Film Corner), Venice Film Fest, and more, I Thought I Told You To Shut Up!! tells the story of Vancouver cartoonist David Boswell, creator of Reid Fleming, counter-culture icon and anti-hero of the comic book series The World’s Toughest Milkman. In the 1980s Warner Bros. secured the film rights and Reid Fleming was on his way to super stardom as the lead character in his very own Hollywood feature film. Over 25 years later, the character is mired in contractual limbo, despite the fact many actors, directors, and producers have expressed interest in adapting the infamous milkman. Creator Boswell along with friends, fans, and industry insiders talk about creativity versus lucrative film franchises and remakes, success and disappointment, and the enduring appeal of Reid Fleming: The World’s Toughest Milkman.
