directed by Julian Schnabel. USA, 1996, 108 min. - Italian version
Schable, a celebrated painter in his own right, tells the story of Jean-Michel Basquiat, the unknown Brooklyn graffiti artist who rose to international fame in the 'eighties and died of a heroin overdose at a very young age. This intense portrait of an artist is remarkable both for its cast - with David Bowie as Andy Warhol - and for its soundtrack by John Cale.
