Jean-Michel Basquiat is not a popular name among the masses, but that is no reason to dismiss this documentary. Basquiat's fame was spread out across Europe by his surrealist paintings, but he was not an artist. Basquiat was a talented, restless, awkward, socially awkward artist who did not fit into the world and thus his work was nothing but a mishmash of themes and images. The documentary makes a good effort to point out the contradictions in Basquiat's style, but I was especially struck by the very awkward nature of the film, especially the way it edited its scenes together. Some scenes are just one long, uninterrupted shot. For example, one of the most interesting scenes in the film is when Basquiat's mother explains to her son how he was abandoned at an early age. This is a fascinating, emotional scene, but the editing cuts to another shot in which the mother is telling the same story, without ever pausing to explain the difference. The scene is a little jarring, but I found it interesting and it seemed to fit well with the documentary. The editing also seems to go on and on, as if the story were not complete. For example, there is a lengthy segment in which Basquiat's mother talks about how much she loves him, and then the camera cuts to a long, blank shot of her. Another segment is where Basquiat's father discusses his late mother, and then cuts to another long shot. This segment would have been better left on the cutting room floor. The documentary also mentions Basquiat's father, who was extremely abusive and wanted to keep his son away from his mother, so Basquiat would be forced to leave school and live in a group home. This segment is also very lengthy, and the editing is jarring. I also felt that this segment was unnecessary, and was only added to draw attention to the abuse, but this was very poorly done and also contradicted the documentary. The documentary also highlights the scenes where Basquiat lived in an extremely poor area, and the scene where he was sent to live with his mother after being arrested for stealing. It is interesting that Basquiat's mother constantly said to him that she was so proud of him, and the documentary only acknowledges this scene after it is shown in a montage, and even then it only shows a few seconds. Overall, I would highly recommend the documentary to anyone who is interested in Basquiat's life, his art, or his work. It is definitely worth watching, but there is some editing that makes it a little hard to follow.

Jean-Michel Basquiat is an enigmatic artist, so enigmatic that his art, much like his music, is inextricably linked to his time and place. The late-seventies to early-nineties period of Basquiat's life is sometimes characterized as the "New World" era, an era of radical and socially changing ideas and movements. Although the youth of the era are usually described as being on the fringes of the world, their rebellion and frustration is often ascribed to a particular type of school and environment, one which is generally referred to as the "psycho-social" school, one that treats youth as little more than immature, socially uneducated pawns in the game of power and dominance. This is a concept which has become almost universally accepted and even exalted within the art world. The "New World" (i.e. the seventies) was a time when ideas and ideas were more readily available than ever. Even in the case of "American Dream", which was a long-term artistic work, it was produced during the New World period, so it was much more accessible than most art works of the period. Jean-Michel Basquiat's early work was an exception to the rule of the New World era. Most artists of the period worked in small, independent, or semi-independent, studios. However, at the height of the New World era, a series of new, but simultaneously innovative, studios were built, which soon became the center of attention and artistic production. These studios provided a wider audience for the artist, allowing him to make a more accessible and accessible work. This time period also introduced the young man to the artistic world, providing him with a new environment in which he could be influenced and shaped. Basquiat's later, and more famous, work often reflects this development. This documentary covers the period of his early life, his later years, his later artistic works, and his later art history. It covers his early life, his early career, his later career, his later artistic works, and his later art history. The interviews are arranged chronologically, and the pieces are arranged in a way that is always interesting and unique. In my opinion, the interviews are very interesting, because they show the development of the artist as well as the evolution of his art, as well as the style of the interviews. There are a few slow and boring parts, but overall this documentary is very interesting. In my opinion, it is the best documentary of the Basquiat's art. If you are a Basquiat fan, you should watch this documentary. If you are not a Basquiat fan, you should watch this documentary.
