Unforgettable 8-track fantasy documentary
"So Wrong They're Right (1999) delivers fascinating tales about 8-track tapes by the most die-hard collectors, including folks like Abigail Levine, James "Big Bucks" Burnette, and the nappy-haired Phil Millstein, who appears to have pulled off some sort of Frankenberry slurpin' hibernation feat in his parent's basement.
The highlight of this gem is its' raw, amateurish footage, and its' candid commentary, complete with titillating insights from some very offbeat collectors. Some of the bands and/or artists mentioned are Lou Reed, the Stooges, Roxy Music, Johns Children, the Sex Pistols, Yoko Ono, Mingus and many others. The film's rough & worn, homemade quality only adds to its brilliance, prompting some to think it was made in the 1970's and not the 1990's.
