Critic Reviews for Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (7)

  • To watch the octogenarian clamber up slabby, exposed cliffs seems to be a testament to grit, but also a view of a stubborn old man's refusal to reckon with reality.

    June 1, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Rebellious and uninhibited, Fred Beckey inspires and frustrates, enthralls and confounds. He's compelling, engaging, and kind of a jerk, which makes "Dirtbag" fascinating and entertaining as all hell.

    July 1, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Dirtbag paints a fascinating portrait of what it means to live life in full pursuit of one's passions.

    March 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Like an old-style scrapbook, 75 years of mountaineering memories are told though old film, camp snapshots and scrappy notes. Director O'Leske steers a steady course trying to get to the uncompromising heart of the extraordinary and ordinary Fred Beckey.

    March 22, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Some impressive material has been unearthed from the archives and O'Leske fills in the gaps with more general footage of some of the mountains the climber ascended in his youth.

    January 29, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Part of what makes Dirtbag such an appealing profile is the director's willingness to allow Beckey to come through in all his deeply flawed humanity.
