In his short career, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a phenomenon. He became notorious for his graffiti art under the moniker Samo in the late 1970s on the Lower East Side scene, sold his first painting to Deborah Harry for $200, and became best friends with Andy Warhol. Appreciated by both the art cognoscenti and the public, Basquiat was launched into international stardom.

A fascinating, if overly worshipful, exploration of the life and art of my favorite artist. I recently got to see one of his works in person - the first time I'd been so fortunate - and I may have teared up a bit. If you're unfamiliar with his work, this is a good overview; if you're a devoted fan, it's worth watching for the previously unreleased video footage of Basquiat discussing his work with a friend, filmmaker Tamra Davis.

A Talented Guy that gets caught up in some bad choices of life.

A lengthy advertisement for a mix of clown and charlatan who played the New York art world like a fiddle. But the film had a good pace, narrative arc, and was entertaining.

It opened my eyes to what goes on behind Modern Art.

A good overview, but made by friends so not particularly balanced.

Required viewing for culture vultures about the brilliant but short-lived wild child of late-20th-century American graffiti art, Jean-Michel Basquiat.
