Critic Reviews for Dirty Hands: The Art & Crimes of David Choe

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • It's not every day that you run into a street artist, petty thief, porn illustrator, lesbian fiction ghost writer, world traveler, graphic novelist, muralist, sex addict and born-again Christian, all rolled into one.

  • Fans of Choe's work - stylized, vibrant, ornate and vulgar - will appreciate the inside look at the self-described man-child, but his struggles to grow up are more tiresome than compelling.

    April 29, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • If Exit Through the Gift Shop is a witty, subversive satire on the rock star-ification of underground graffiti artists, Dirty Hands is a sober, loving snapshot of one troubled soul within that milieu.

    April 29, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Dirty Hands's witnessing of Choe's "from g to gent" journey is delivered in no linear fashion, perfectly matching the artist's creative process and maniac persona in its editing style.

    April 26, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Although too long by far-it arcs about 20 minutes shorter than the actual end-it's always entertaining, even if it's passing-by-a-car-crash fascinating

    July 5, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • A wild biographical ride that adds an unexpected psychological layer to the classic art versus commerce conundrum.
