“A vivid and beautifully meditative memory piece on the downtown New York art and music scene of the late 1970s and early ‘80s. Jean-Michel Basquiat, an inquisitive and ambitious teenager from Brooklyn, appeared on the scene and quickly made it his own. A quick study and fizzing with ideas, Basquiat was a sponge who took in all the work being done around him and incorporated it into his own style. He was a charmer with a knack for drama and the mysterious. From hip-hop pioneer Fab Five Freddy to graffiti legend Lee Quiñones and Jim Jarmusch each interview adds to the picture. New music like the Talking Heads was churning at the Mudd Club, performance art was ripping up audience expectations at Club 57, and artists were defying the white-wall gallery establishment and that world’s sterile abstractions with their own loudly insurgent work.” -Chris Barsanti, the Playlist
