Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child

93 mins
8.6 / 10 (1811)


In his short career, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a phenomenon, appreciated by both the art cognoscenti and the public. Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child dives into Basquiat as an iconoclast, his bebop-influenced neoexpressionist work, and the racism he constantly encountered.

MUBI's take

Tamra Davis’s essential documentary on a visionary, Jean-Michel Basquiat, looks beyond his enigmatic aura. A vibrant, tantalizing study of an artist who, in the director’s own words, “became famous for his art, and then became famous for being famous, and then became famous for being infamous.”
