Starring the legendary American painter, graffiti artist, poet and musician Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) this is both a post-modernist fairytale and a vivid depiction of the downtown New York art and music scene in the early 1980s. The film chronicles a day in the life of a 19 year-old starving artist who must raise money to reclaim the apartment from which he has been evicted.

Interesting film- you get to see Basquiat and NYC in all their terminal glory- and it has a great soundtrack to boot.
