Both an inspiring introduction to the nascent genius of Jean-Michel Basquiat and an immersive time-trip to the creative caldron that was New York City in the dark and dirty late 1970s, Sara Driver's documentary has a you-are-there quaility that can't be reproduced. At this point in his life Basquiat was couch-surfing, but creating art out of anything within reach. But he was painting too (including his friend's clothes and fridges), making music, and making waves.
