Watch Basquiat (1996)

Basquiat talks about the rapid development of the young artist Jean Michel Basquiat. Basquiat begins as a street artist and lives in a box in Thompkins Square Park. He becomes a star and part of the world of Andy Warhol's art. But success comes at a price, and Basquiat pays with friendship, love, and ultimately with life.

Definitely movie from my personal top 10 of best movies ever. I really recommend to see and put Basquiat on the list of the best films, because Basquiat certainly deserve it. The term 'Best movie' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as the best may not even be in someone else's list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of people like as the best. To me the following can be regarded as some of the greatest movie ever made. Basquiat filled me with difficult to explain energy got me so immersed in it. The richness of dialogue, which is the power of this image, arouses the respect of the recipient, especially when compared to today's productions, most of them are very poor. I can't say that I'm a big fan of Biography, but I liked it!. It's a movie for everyone, I'm sure you'll like it after watching.... Show more
