When brilliant American painter Jean-Michel Basquiat died of an overdose at the age of 27 in 1988, fellow artist Julian Schnabel marked the moment by scrawling, “JMB August 12th” on a 16-foot tarpaulin. Nearly ten years in the making, Schnabel’s Basquiat is a film of exhilarating verve, which casts an eclectic group of celebrity names into the New York arts firmament in a portrayal of Basquiat’s brief life. Cast: Jeffrey Wright, Christopher Walken, Dennis Hopper, David Bowie, Gary Oldman, Courtney Love, Tatum O’Neal, Willem Dafoe, Claire Forlani
