New Basquiat Film

Jean-Michel Basquiat, the genius painter who died too young, appears in a new film about his life. Basquiat, who befriended Andy Warhol during his epic, brief rise, was one of the '80s art stars whose legend extends to today. The artist died of a heroin overdose, leaving his admirers and patrons bereft. Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child opened last night.
