Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2017). Directed by Sara Driver, 78 min., NR
This intimate documentary recounts the early career of renowned artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and explores how New York City, its people, and its art culture influenced him and shaped his vision. “What’s refreshing about Sara Driver’s look-back documentary … is the frisky, contemplative, ground-level angle it takes on its hype-magnet of a subject.” (Los Angeles Times)
