The Critic (Oscar 1963)

Mel Brooks is an old man watching abstract animations. Simple, abstract, geometric shapes move and morph on the screen to what sounds like harpsichord music.
He doesn't understand them, so he heckles with strange commentary, to the annoyance of those around him.

In the background we hear a man giving his ideas about what he sees, completely without a clue. The voice of an audience member, who claims to be 71, complains through out most the film despite being told repeatedly by other audience members to keep quiet.
The voice is from Mel Brooks.
