Editorial Reviews

Robert Williams was an artist in search of a movement. A prolific oil painter, whose painstakingly detailed work often featured naked women, death, destruction, booze and clowns, he didn't quite fit the fine art mold. In the early 1960s he was confronted with trendy abstraction and superficial pop art. Schooled in the Hot Rod Culture of Ed Big Daddy Roth and Von Dutch, he emerged as a leader in the Underground Comic revolution along with R. Crumb, contributing regularly to Zap Comix. His antisocial paintings of an alternative reality were marginalized by the art world for decades although he became a hero of sorts for underground artists. His notoriety exploded when his painting Appetite for Destruction was used (and much vilified) as the cover for that 1987 Guns N' Roses' album. When he started Juxtapoz Magazine in 1994, his movement found him. Legions of artists looking for a place within the contemporary art world for their cartoonish realism identified with his LowBrow aesthetic. At the time, Williams predicted that, Low brow and alternative art are the crack in the dam and with this leak the art world will never be the same.By 2010 the art world could ignore him no longer and he was included in the prestigious Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. ROBERT WILLIAMS MR. BITCHIN documents this influential artist as he rises to the top of the art world, always an outsider.

The artistic minds of late 21st century will have forgotten the art that came out of Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock's New York lofts, but they'll make pilgrimages to Robert Williams California garage. Like Muslims longing to stand on the same grains of sand as stood the prophet.

This is a great film and a must for anyone trying to understand the Post WWII counter cultural art movement, that sprang out of California in the last half of the twentieth century. Rich in the history of decedent American art. The film also follows Williams associations with other Iconic Counter Culture Figures like Griffin, Mouse and Crumb.

Mr. Bitchin' is an intimate look at the life and work of one of our greatest artists. Robert Williams knows what "Diddy Wa Diddy" means. His genius at aberrant artistry creates tiny time capsules of contrdiction in the minds of unsuspecting viewers. The filmmakers are to be congratulated. This is my favorite documentary of 2013 and it's only September.

You get a lot of his way of working and if you include a lot of his interviews from various sources (Comic's Journal, Juxtapoz) you will get a vast amount information about Mr. Williams. His art is what inspired the direction of the illustrative fine art scene of the 90's until today. There are pros and cons to the movement, but the very best are always well deserving of their success.

I've been a fan of RW for years, so I was really excited to see this. Entertaining, funny doc on an amazing artist. My problem is, I've loaned it to friends and can't seem to get it back.

I liked it but I felt it could have been more focused on Mr. Williams. Too many side stories that caused me to lose focus.
Interviews from his followers and supporters were good, just a little too drawn out. I just felt like the story only touched the surface of the man.
