I've seen the documentary on this very topic several times and this is the first time I've seen it on television. While I don't agree with all the opinions of the critics of the documentary, I can say that it's a very entertaining documentary, and there's nothing to complain about. In some cases, it is a bit too focused on the early work of the artist. There are a lot of short clips, and you can only really see the work in the context of the time. You can't really see how this work evolved. What I can say is that this documentary is fascinating, and it does a good job of presenting Basquiat's early work. It is one of those documentaries that is definitely worth seeing, and it is definitely worth seeing it.

Fittingly titled, "Jean-Michel Basquiat: Boom for Real," this film is a fascinating look at the photographer and his work, from his beginnings in New York to his final years in the early 1980s. The documentary gives an insight into the art world and how it is influenced by the fashion industry, and the photographer's work is very evident throughout. There are many interviews with the artist, who was an outspoken anti-war activist in his younger years. He often expressed how he wanted to do the "right thing" and be "true to himself." The artist did not come off as a saint, but he also had many personal demons and at times was prone to bouts of depression. One of the most interesting aspects of the film is the way the photographer uses his art to help him cope with his emotional problems. As the documentary states, "He had no concept of what he was doing to anyone. He was a radical in the sense that he was interested in how things looked on the surface and he was interested in how people looked on the surface." In other words, he used his art to express the confusion he felt in his life and to help him cope with his emotional problems. This film also features a discussion between Basquiat and other art critics who discuss the work of Basquiat and what he intended with his images. The documentary also includes interviews with people such as Edward Hopper, who was inspired by Basquiat's work and is interviewed. The film also features interviews with other Basquiat artists, including Deborah Ward, the artist's widow. The documentary also includes many close-ups of Basquiat's work, and a look at the photographer's life before his death at age 33. Basquiat was a major influence on the fashion industry, and his images are often used in fashion advertisements. The documentary is very insightful and interesting, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in Basquiat and his work.

I recently saw this movie and was pleasantly surprised by it. It was very interesting, informative, and for some reason it didn't feel like an art film. It was a very honest look at a man's life that is otherwise lost. The film was told in a very intimate way, which I think was very powerful and made it very easy to relate to the characters. The subject matter was very relevant and something we all go through, which is sad and also not the best thing to do. The documentary was interesting and I found myself on the edge of my seat, with the people I was watching it with. The film had a really good story, and it was very well done. It was interesting to see a lot of people that I didn't know before, but it was also a really interesting way to look at the life of Jean-Michel Basquiat. I think the documentary was a really good idea and it really shows that even though he was such a great artist and a star, he really didn't have the best of luck. The movie had a really good story, and it was really entertaining, which is something I can't say for a lot of documentaries I've seen. Overall, I really enjoyed this film and it was really good. It was an interesting look at the life of a man who was really one of a kind, and that's something I really admire about him.

This documentary is fascinating in its own right. But it's the archival footage of the late Jean-Michel Basquiat that really stands out. We see some of his earliest paintings, then move into his later works. We see the art dealer's theories on the meaning of his paintings, then finally the mysterious disappearances. There's also a fascinating section about the whole project. The idea that someone's paintings could disappear is something that fascinates me. The documentary doesn't dwell on that at all, and I think that's a good thing. This is a very fascinating documentary, and I recommend it to everyone.

I love a good documentary, and I love the late Jean-Michel Basquiat, and I love his music. I love the "Soundtrack" of the "Music of My Life", and I love his "Buy Your Way Out" T-shirt. The documentary is really great. I have to admit that the film itself is not that great. The film's title is misleading, because the only thing that really happened was the Basquiat's appearance at a Miami music festival, and that was it. The documentary is not really about the Basquiat, and the documentary doesn't really cover any of his music, because the Basquiat's music is very interesting, and it's hard to be boring. And the Basquiat is a really great guy. I also liked the Basquiat's songs, and his appearance at the Miami music festival was really cool. I think that the Basquiat is the best man for the documentary. The documentary is really good, and I would recommend it to everyone. 7/10

I first saw this documentary in the late 90's and I was amazed. It's a documentary that takes a look at the life of a man that you wouldn't believe had so much talent. This documentary really shows how a lot of his contemporaries thought of him. The documentary does a great job of showing his life and how his life changed in a few short years. There is a great amount of music in this documentary and it shows the influence that he had on a lot of people. There is a lot of information about his work and his music that is not included in the documentary. I would recommend this documentary to anyone that likes the early years of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

It's only a pity the director didn't use a longer, more in depth interview, as well as a more in depth look at Basquiat's personal life. This documentary would have made for a great movie. However, if we can even get to know Basquiat's personal life, then we can get a much better picture of the life and times of this painter. That's what this film does, but it's too little too late. The story doesn't leave much time for the viewer to be involved in the story of Basquiat, but it does show us a lot about his life, his artistic work and how he left it. That's all. It's not a film about Basquiat, but it's about a lot of other artists and the artists they were, so it's a worthwhile watch. But it's nowhere near enough to satisfy the curiosity of the filmmaker, so it's worth a look for those who like Basquiat or for those who are interested in his life. However, I don't think it's worth a place in your library, either.

There's no denying the awesomeness of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The man was so prolific, he left a treasure trove of work behind, and it's hard to pinpoint just how many paintings he had created. This documentary follows Basquiat through his life, from his childhood in the poverty-stricken Basque country of Aragon to his days as a celebrated street artist. The documentary doesn't shy away from any of the controversy, and it's hard not to see the corruption and back-stabbing that went on behind the scenes. Basquiat, of course, was deeply religious, and he was accused of heresy by some of his fellow artists. However, it's impossible to deny that he was one of the most gifted artists of his time, and his work is simply one of the best of its era. The documentary has its flaws, but there's no denying that Basquiat's work is something to behold. The film also seems to have a self-consciousness that doesn't help the documentary. It's as if the film is trying to say something, but it doesn't. I know, I know, it's just a documentary. But it feels like it's trying to say something and it's saying nothing. But I can't help but feel that there's a real talent on display here. The documentary is actually worth watching.

I'm a huge fan of Basquiat, and of his work, and have been since the late 1970s. So I was curious to see the documentary. It is very interesting, as it follows the life of a man who was a world-renowned artist, who was a pioneer in the field of graffiti, and who had a huge impact on the culture of his time. He was a real innovator, and his work was highly influential. I thought it was very well done. It was very interesting to see how the film makers used the photos, the stories, and the interviews. The only thing that was a little bit weak about the documentary was the music, which is a little bit too loud. I think it would have been better to have done it in a quieter, slower, less heavy type of music. I really enjoyed the film, and I'm glad that it was made. I think it was well done, and I'm looking forward to seeing it again.

A very interesting documentary about a man who was one of the most influential and popular artists of the 1980s. The documentary focuses on his early life and how he came to be a graffiti artist. The documentary does not give much information on his personal life but instead focuses on his work. It is interesting to see how he was able to make a living in the 80s, especially since he was in his early twenties. He was also able to become famous in France and make his own art. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is a fan of Basquiat, graffiti, or art.

I'm glad I didn't watch this at the cinema. I would have wasted the 2 hours I would have had to sit through this thing. I don't think the film should have been shown at all. It should have been shown only to those with an interest in Basquiat. The film is long and full of a lot of interviews with people who knew him, and even more interviews with people who knew him, but didn't know him. A lot of the people interviewed have already commented that it's very boring, but I think it's an interesting look at the artist. The film seems to be more about his life than his work, and it is only about half an hour. I would have liked to have seen more of the artist's work, and even more of his life. I think it's a pity that he died without seeing his masterpiece. I think the film could have been longer, and it would have been more interesting. It also looks like he was in a lot of pain during the time he was making this film. He was a pretty poor man. The film is boring, but it's worth seeing.

This is a wonderful documentary on one of the most under-appreciated artists of our time. The style of the documentary is very interesting and I highly recommend it. It also has some great interviews with the artists and some great stories about the artists. The interviews are very interesting, and the film is very informative and entertaining. The documentary is divided in two parts, and each part is very interesting and engaging. The documentary does a great job of telling the story of Jean-Michel Basquiat, but it is also very informative and entertaining. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in art, or in artists. It is very informative and entertaining.

This documentary explores the life of Jean-Michel Basquiat (born 1955), a Montreal artist whose work will be on display at the ICA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, in February, 2005. This documentary provides a well-rounded view of Jean-Michel's life from his early childhood to his retirement from the art world in the late 1990s. It also explores his relationship with his wife and two daughters, and his relationship with his mother and sister. This documentary is an interesting look at a fascinating artist, and will provide a much-needed insight into his life.

This film was a little bit longer than I expected, and I think it could have been longer, as it was almost three hours long. However, I still think it was an interesting film, as it tells a bit of Basquiat's life, and I think it was a good look at his career and his art. I also think it did a good job at making you understand the lives of some of the artists and musicians that Basquiat was influenced by. I think this was a really good film, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know a bit more about Basquiat's life.

I am sure this movie will get a lot of attention for it's long time of being available on Netflix. The movie is about Jean-Michel Basquiat, a Parisian artist who is born in Belgium in 1972. He grew up in Montreal and began his artistic career as an artist with the name "Michel Basquiat". It is a documentary that traces his early life and his unique style. The story starts with his early life and ends with his death. The movie is well-filmed and well-written. The movie is well-made, well-edited and well-acted. The director did a great job. I recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the late Jean-Michel Basquiat. I would say that the movie is a great film.

I'm a fan of Basquiat's work, and I was curious to see how the man himself saw his career. And what a career it was. The documentary is not just about his early life, but also about his art, and how he changed the world of art. It's a fascinating look at how an artist from the ghetto in New York changed the world of art. I found it interesting to see how he went from the extreme poverty of his hometown to the rich New York of the 1960's. His work was so influential that it brought new artists to the mainstream. This documentary will be a good addition to any Basquiat fan's collection.

Jean-Michel Basquiat's death was a sad event for the world of art. He was a brilliant artist who left a legacy of his own. In the documentary, "Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat," filmmaker Alex D. Lerner interviews the artists, collectors, and other individuals who knew Jean-Michel. The film is a rich exploration of the artist's life, the artists' lives, and the people who knew him. It's a fascinating portrait of the artist's life, the artist's life, and the people who knew him. The film is a great example of the power of documentary. The interviews are well-balanced and the filmmakers follow the artist's life and work. They capture the most important moments of the artist's life and the moments that shaped him. "Boom for Real" is a must-see for anyone who is a fan of Jean-Michel Basquiat or art.

As a young man I was fascinated by the world of Jean-Michel Basquiat. This documentary is an excellent reminder that this is the life of one of the most prolific artists of the 20th century. The documentary is very informative and there are a few things that are missing. I'm not sure if the missing information is a mistake or if they're missing the documentary. Either way, this is a very well made documentary. I was impressed with the way the director was able to capture the energy of Basquiat and the way he was able to capture the artistry of his work. This is a very well done documentary. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is a Basquiat fan. It is a great reminder of one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. If you're a Basquiat fan, then you'll want to see this documentary. If you're not a Basquiat fan, then you'll want to see this documentary. You'll want to see it because of the energy that it captures. It captures the essence of Basquiat and the energy that he brought to his work. I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in Basquiat or has some interest in Basquiat. It is a great documentary.
