August 7, 2009
An amiable portrait of the artist as a scruffy slacker, and a useful jumping off point for anyone interested in investigating some of the cultural issues that marked the 1990s and the start of the new millennium.

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.

The affection these people have for each other is what makes Beautiful Losers (the name is taken from one of their shows) so attractive.

a celebration of rude and raw art and the kinetic charge of experiencing something fresh and undefiled

August 7, 2008
Pleasing though less-than-profound homage.
August 7, 2008
A product of the movement as much as an ode to it, the film is a gem because of the immaturity and intimacy that it shares with those featured in it.

Regardless of Rose's intentions, his underachieving airiness is both entertaining and perfectly fitting for the slacker ennui of his clique's rising years.

A celebration of Peter Pan-like spirits who felt the freedom to express themselves before anybody cared.
