The “beautiful losers” of this documentary film are self-described former nerds, freaks and outsiders who turned to skate and graffiti-inspired art, and become … successes.’
~ The Moment
/ The New York Times
Aaron Rose’s documentary Beautiful Losers is a portrait of the former nerds, freaks and outsiders who coalesced around New York’s Alleged Gallery in the ’90s, and became accidental art-stars. Rooted in the DIY worlds of skate, surf, punk, hip hop and graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led, and in doing so created one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation.
Featuring Shepard Fairey (creator of the Obey Giant series), Stephen ‘ESPO’ Powers, the graphic design and advertising skews made by Mike Mills and Geoff McFetridge, Harmony Korine’s wacko filmography, and the arresting naivety in Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen and Barry McGee’s bodies of work, Beautiful Losers looks at what happened when the outsiders became ‘in’, and celebrates the creative ethos that continues to inspire them. (90 mins. Rated: R)
‘More than an instance of instant nostalgia, the film is a low-key celebration of people and community, what can happen when like-minded individuals really get it together.’
~ The Los Angeles Times
‘Perhaps Beautiful Losers can stand as a reminder to hold onto our silliness while we still can.’
