4 out of 10 basquiat
sue from Sligo, 01 Dec 2007
this is one of my all time favourite films. great cast. a very sad tale about an artist. a black artist. ok so he was a space cadet, but the film shows how artist can be so removed from their audience, and isolated in so-called success. it was the second time i'd seen it, and i was curious to see how well it stood up to my initial reaction when it first came out. it was good. i like denis hopper and gary oldman, and william dafoe also, tho he only has a very small part. a cameo innit?

5 out of 10 very good

This is a tragic true story of a young artist whose quick rise to stardom having been discovered by Andy Warhol was also his tragic fall into heroin addiction.This is a brilliant film with an equally brilliant cast.

2 out of 10 Disappointing
Klair from Dublin, 07 Jul 2008
Given the great revies below, my expectations were high and i was let down. it is only ok, it is a bit disjointed and really is not that great! A sad story but so much more could have been done with it!!

I found this movie really insightful and fascinating. It really seemed to captured the moment in the NYC art world.

What's it about....
Basquiat tells the story of the meteoric rise of youthful artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Starting out as a street artist, living in Thompkins Square Park in a cardboard box, Jean-Michel is "discovered" by Andy Warhol's art world and becomes a star. But success has a high price, and Basquiat pays with friendship, love, and eventually, his life.
