So, yeah, in the early, like, ’90s there were, like, some artists and filmmakers like Barry McGee and Shepard Fairey and Ed Templeton and and Harmony Korine who made, like, crazy street art and, like, crazy films. Some of these guys, like, loved skating and hanging out at Aaron Rose’s scuzzy gallery in New York called, like, Alleged. It’s Rose who, like, made this vague but, like, likeable film about his friends, who say sweet but dumb things like ‘Why have cancer? Why not be funny?’. But, like, they’re obviously  a decent bunch with, like, good hearts. When the ’90s became the ’00s, they got, like, famous and people like Pepsi gave them, like, money to do more crazy shit but with, like, logos. So how do you, like, not sell out? It’s hard, man. Rose, like, lost his gallery, but then in 2004 curated  a show in Cincinnatti with these guys and called it, like, ‘Beautiful Losers’. And made, like, this film. So that’s cool.

Saw this with a sculptor, painter, hedge-fund manager, teacher and a novelist. We all loved it. The film is about creativity's unquenchable spirit and artists doing what they love for the love of doing it, and their work ultimately mattering. Great shots of NYC, Brooklyn. IFC Center's sound and picture quality only highlight how well-made this film is on all levels. If you are willing to be inspired--go.
