Special thanks to the first viewer of Annoying film! It was Oscar Ekberg from Sweden. We talked on Facebook and I got to know him a bit and realized how lucky I was to get a viewer like him. Oscar is a really good poet.
A very warm and special thanks for very early support and help to Stefan Salzer from Vienna, Austria. The strongest support in Europe to Annoying music and Annoying film comes from Germany and Austria and in both countries, it started with Stefan! Here are some comments from people that watched the film.

This is a movie about talent. This is a movie about what music should always be. It's not about fame, wealth, or even the technique and how you get to play or record your songs. It's about heart, it's about guts, it's about realness, it's about persona, it's about charisma. Chad Fontaine RIP. And thank you for this moment.

I've been following this band for a while now, and watched the film on Vimeo when it came out. It is probably one of, if not my absolute favourite film I've watched. It's unique entirely, characters, structure, everything. People said the exact same thing about the 'glorifying of drug addiction' when the iconic film Trainspotting came out, and I find it ridiculous some people would accuse the auteur of this film of it. Like Trainspotting, this is a work of social realism, something almost tangible, on a very undocumented occurrence happening in our time that no one seems brave enough to actually document on an equal level to its participants. It's not like you sit there an watch a David Attenborough documentary and think, "Hang on, I want to be a lizard now. So I'm going to go live in a hole in the desert and eat my own offspring." It's ridiculous, and this film deserves a great deal more than a statement like that. Zoran's film is honestly one of my all time favourites, and I don't see it being replaced or matched for a great deal of time to come.

"A Canadian music documentary directed by Zoran Maslic.
Music videos of a gutter punk duo and interviews with one of the members detail the trials and tribulations of life on the streets in Canada.
AMAZING! Thank you, Nate!!! As the plot develops, it reveals deeper depths of addiction, homelessness, childhood abuse and neglect. The characters are as unique as they can be. As I watched it, I wanted more and more to play bass for their band because they are outcasts, misfits and red-headed stepchildren like myself. The video featured mainly interview and musical performance footage. This was inter-cut with appropriate B-roll of the city, mostly at night. There was also some skateboarding involved. The audio featured some of the best music of the genre, but I suspect that the performers know a very limited number of chords and progressions. Overall, exactly the musical hobo documentary that I wanted and it gets as gritty as possible. I rate this best. WATCH IT!!!!"

"Fucking great work man. I would never care about Annoying without you I can assure you that, but that is a great film. Grittier and deeper than I'd hoped. Anyone who thinks this glorifies drugs is a retard who deserves a kick in the dick."

Great film, Zoran. Really captures the visual & aural ambiance of Chad's world, showing the musical creativity of him & his friends while providing a rich, heartfelt, continuous soundtrack in the process.
Illuminates the humanity & harsh reality of life in the shadows of mainstream culture most people will never get this close to.
Creative, skillful use of camera, sound, editing packed a lot into 90 minutes, I thought.

YES !! I'll never not get excited to see you've posted a new video Zoran. My housemates and I hired out the doco online again for the second time just the other week. I still trip out on the fact that my mums relatives are Cree Indian = ) , made me want to research them. Anyways thanks again for being there all the times with a camera and capturing the moments so that others can enjoy. Legend. R.I.P Chad

When i first discovered Annoying I instantly fell in love with them and their sound, as a teenager in Miami you can imagine how rare it is to find anyone who listens to any folk but i felt connected to these men in our problems and lives. all i can say is keep up the good work, man.

Brilliantly shot and edited film. Grant Faithful is a compelling lead and his musical promise is on full display. Gritty look at 3 wayward souls that 'are trying to make the best of a shitty situation'.
