Storyline

The greatest cultural accomplishments in history have never been the result of the brainstorms of marketing men, corporate focus groups, or any homogenized methods; they have always happened organically. More often than not, these manifestations have been the result of a few like-minded people coming together to create something new and original for no other purposethan a common love of doing it. In the 1990s, a loose-knit group of American artists and creators, many just out of their teens, began their careers in just such a way. Influenced by the popular underground youth subcultures of the day, such as skateboarding, graffiti, street fashion and independent music, artists like Shepard Fairey, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine, and Ed Templeton began to create art that reflected the lifestyles they led.

Such a Beautiful Film!
1 June 2010 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

Beautiful Losers is such an inspirational film! After watching the film, it made me want to go out and use my creativity to create something great. The lives of the artists were very interesting, and each of them has had such a huge impact in the art world and pop culture.

When I saw the movie, I wanted to watch it because I was interested in the subject matter, but my friend that I watched it with was not at all interested in art and artists, but she had an open mind and trusted my judgment. After the movie, she said that she really enjoyed it, and it was very moving. She even claimed that it was one of her favorite films that she has seen in a while.

I think everybody can take something away from this film! It's put together so beautifully, and it's just so inspiring.
