Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child


(Song featured in trailer is "Salt Peanuts," by Charlie Parker)

The Radiant Child, directed by Tamra Davis, centers on a rare interview that the director and friend shot with Basquiat over twenty years ago. The never before seen footage and definitive documentary chronicles the meteoric rise and fall of the young artist, and provides an in-depth look at the person who strongly influenced a generation.

If I were sticking around this weekend (have an upstate wedding in the Catskills!) I would make it a point to see this movie.
