Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child

This movie was pretty good!  It's on instant Netflix too, if that means anything to you.

It's a well-done documentary based on Basquiat's short career in the 1980's Manhattan art world.  Not to be confused with the dramatic movie from 1996, "Basquiat," which I want to rewatch.

I always liked Basquiat's work.  It's really sad that he died so young, however at the appropriate rockstar age of 27.  Cause of death: speedballs.
