Last night, we went to check out the Hawaii premiere of Dirty Hands: The Art and Crimes of David Choe. Both David Choe and the director, Harry Kim were present to answer questions. We thought it was a great movie.....basically chronicling David Choe's 20's with footage taken over a 7 year period. With labels like "manic depressive," "kleptomaniac," and "sexual addict," it was a raw look at his start in the outsider art scene and rise to fame. Kind of makes you think of what diagnoses you should have had whey you were in your 20's. Although most of us haven't traveled the world, been imprisoned, or sold 2.5 million dollars of anything, I think a lot of us can identify with the struggles that were captured in the movie...making the "right" decision, growing up, maintaining relationships. It's playing at the Hawaii International Film Festival one more time; 10/15 at 7pm.
They had $10 tees for sale, too!
