The Only Thing Better Than A Speidi Documentary Is Spencer Pratt's Reaction To It

If you were not in a cave from 2006 to 2010, you might feel that the world has seen quite enough of Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag to last a lifetime. Speidi, a homemade documentary about the Hills stars made by 22-year-old Fashion Institute of Technology student Will Rebein might change your mind about that.

Speidi, which Rebein says he put together over two weeks, is an exhaustively comprehensive look at the couple's rise and fall. A fan since he was 15 years old, Rebein told Broadly that he had already collected a lot of the footage before making the film. It's something of a collage — of show clips, TV interviews, and paparazzi videos and photos — that gets artsy at times. Title cards provide a somewhat critical analysis of Pratt and Montag as both calculating "characters" and victims of their own success.

Ironically enough, the doc has elicited the most self-deprecating comment we've ever witnessed from Pratt himself. Pratt wrote the following in response to Paper magazine's tweet about the doc, which called Speidi a "D-lister duo."


Woah. The guy who has designed his life around reality TV, stood by and watched his wife change her entire body for the public, and even once filed for divorce for the sake of grabbing headlines now doesn't think he deserves to be called a D-lister? Excuse us while we go edit footage so it looks like we're shedding one single tear for the infamous villain.

Rebein's commentary and editing reveal that the filmmaker is particularly sympathetic to Montag's plight.

"Watching all the clips again, I truly realized how much Heidi had changed and had a realization that people only paid attention to her physical change and not the emotional changes or abuse she went through," Rebein told Broadly.
Earlier, Pratt tweeted that he wished Rebein had interviewed him for the film.

Rebein cites the Paris Hilton doc Paris, Not France and the Ryan Murphy series Nip/Tuck as style influences. The budding auteur also made a similar film called I'm Not Crazy about Britney Spears and Amanda Bynes. His exchange with Pratt on Twitter seems to indicate he may try to edit Speidi again, with some input from the subjects themselves.

In any case, we can't wait to see the kind of films he'll make as he matures (and maybe gets a little help?). Pratt, meanwhile, is doing his best to maintain his position somewhere on the D to Z list, keeping busy on his podcast The Spyson Hour with fellow Marriage Boot Camp alum Tyson Apostol and posting frequently on Snapchat...probably until the next reality show comes along. In the meantime, check out the documentary below.
