    I saw this documentary tonight and my comments are more about his so-called art than about the film. To call Jean-Michel Basquiat an artist is laughable. As was brought out in the film, he met Andy Warhol, who was indeed a great artist. Warhol's interest in Jean-Michel was sexual desire more than anything else as Warhol was a homosexual and Jean-Michel was an attractive young man. The film is quite entertaining, but I left the theater wondering how in the world anyone could possibly consider that crap Jean-Michel Basquiat smeared on canvas is in an shape or form art. It looks like something a primative child would paint.
