  • As you watch the movie wholeheartedly and uncritically celebrate the group's "nonconformist" ethos (shouldn't someone gently break it to them?), you can feel the energy being sucked out of you.

  • Like the art scene it documents, Beautiful Losers is chaotic, anarchic, rambling and populated by charismatic freaks with statement T-shirts, complicated haircuts and impossibly rare trainers.

  • You can't help but feel like a bit of an eye-rolling parent, wondering if a few of them might benefit from a proper job and a light slap.

    Interesting, but underwhelming documentary about art. Had some good things in it, and the artist interviews were enjoyable, but felt a bit lacking somewhere.

    documentary looking back on artists in the late 80s early 90s, aroundthenewyork area, therei nspirations, and motivesfor being who they are in life, a interesting watch, and does a tidy job of getting in minds of the people

    Documentary on a group of self-made artists in 90's New York and how their DIY mentality influenced the mainstream world of art and advertisting. As a fan of artists whose primary focus isn't to be as cool as humanly possible (cf most surfer dude documentaries) it was nice to see artists enthusiastically dissing their early works and emphasizing how nerdy they were, but it was hard to tell how they got from there to fame or indeed how famous they got to be. But there's a definitely charm in a philosophy that embraces all of us who still secretly like to "make stuff" at home.
