🎞️ Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child (2010)

Updated: Feb 14, 2023

2010 | Not rated | 1h 28m


Director Tamra Davis pays homage to her friend in this definitive documentary but also delves into Basquiat as an iconoclast. His dense, bebop-influenced neoexpressionist work emerged while minimalist, conceptual art was the fad; as a successful black artist, he was constantly confronted by racism and misconceptions. Much can be gleaned from insider interviews and archival footage, but it is Basquiat's own words and work that powerfully convey the mystique and allure of both the artist and the man. ~Sundance Film Festival
