Radiant Child

Last night, we watched an excellent documentary by Tamra Davis called Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child. The film chronicles the incredibly prolific painter's short yet meteoric career and features tons of archival footage of the artist working and talking about his life and art. Although I've seen other pieces on his work (including Basquiat, which is also a great vid) this felt like the most honest and in-depth portrait I'd seen of the sensitive and ambitious artist.
