  • What we learn from the enjoyable punditry of siblings, art-world associates and former lovers is that the gorgeous provocateur was consumed with fame, and that everything and everybody was a means to that end.

  • There is food for thought here, although the movie is, for me, a little uncritical on the subject of Mapplethorpe's weaknesses: his lucrative celebrity portraits now look, frankly, uninteresting.
