Santa Monica, CA: Miramax, 1996. Vintage borderless black-and-white contact sheet from the 1996 film, containing over 25 likely never-before-seen images. Included are photos of Jeffrey Wright as Basquiat, David Bowie as Warhol, Dennis Hopper as Bruno, Jennifer Miro, artist and Basquiat collaborator Ouattara Watts, actress Olatz Lopez Garmendia (Schnabel's ex-wife), and a few others of the cast and crew.
One of the best biopics of the 1990s. Julian Schnabel not only took on the death-defying task of bringing the enigmatic Basquiat to the screen, he did so with one of the most breathtaking ensemble casts ever assembled, and managed to keep the film literate, honest, and open-ended.
Shot on location in New York.
8.5 x 11 inches (21.5 x 27.75 cm). Very Good plus, with faint creasing and soil.
