Hells yeah, I'm a big fan of Bebber's Deadbeat at Dawn. True story: I lived in Dayton, OH (attended Walter E. Stebbins High 11th-12th grade) when the film was made and remember there being a huge stink on the news about some gang starting trouble near a parking garage. That was actually Van Bebber filming the scene where he scales the garage and sets a mattress on fire in the middle of the street, without a permit and without notifying authorities or property owners that he'd be filming (he mentions this in the DVD commentary).
Deadbeat's backyard, guerilla filmmaking at its most exciting, far as I'm concerned. And it drips with 80s nostalgia; karate and nunchucks and throwing stars, oh my!
