DVD: Beautiful Losers (15)
Friday 21 August 2009
In the 1990s a gallery in New York, Alleged, became the centre for a new collective of American artists.
Born out of skateboarding, punk rock and graffiti, they went from the underground to appearing in exhibitions, and included Shepard Fairey (who created that Obama poster), Harmony Korine, and Alleged's founder and one of the film's directors, Aaron Rose. Mainly consisting of interviews with archive footage, there are no massive revelations. But it manages to be an entertaining and endearing watch.
