Critic Reviews for LA Originals

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

A feature-length sizzle reel in service of its makers' still semi-underground reputation.

April 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Although the film unfolds from an insider's perspective (with an irritating tendency to drop one name after another), it is also a good introduction to the two artists.

April 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Excellent hip-hop culture docu has swearing, drug use.

April 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

LA Originals serves as an introduction to the artists who influenced a large swath of popular culture for a decade or two.

April 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Estevan Oriol gives a cultural, social, and even racial dimension to his story and to his friend Mr. Cartoon (Mark Machado), a talented artist who ends up being the most interesting character. [Full Review in Spanish]

April 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Giving a firsthand account of how that rose bloomed out of the concrete, Oriol's crackling (if oftentimes meandering) documentary feels deeply personal, a snapshot of a subculture that's since gone mainstream.
