Critic Reviews for Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

A treasure for those interested in Downtown New York's heyday and a demythologized Basquiat.

September 10, 2017 | Full Review…

Movingly remembers him -forever young--as unique figure who connected punk, hip hop, hardcore, DIY films, gallery, graffiti and street art, across genres, classes, and races.

Driver knows cool, and, to borrow from one of New York's current crop of aspirant hipsters, she was there, so the results are thorough, a fine primer for anyone who, like the film's Basquiat, is refining their nose for culture.

[a] vivid and beautifully meditative memory piece on the downtown New York art and music scene of the late 1970s and early '80s...

Driver does a great job of showing how Basquiat's graffiti smears were more than just a subjective piece of art but also spoke candidly to social commentary on race, poverty, and oppression.

October 2, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Informative and perfectly rendered.
