Critic Reviews for The Universe of Keith Haring
It is the passion and commitment we see in the artist himself that makes the most lasting impression.
Utilizing copious film footage of her puckish subject and new interviews with Haring's contemporaries, gallerists and mentors, director Christina Clausen makes her fascinating movie as big-hearted, city-centric and energetic as its subject.
As directed by Rome-based Christina Clausen, the film is loving but shallow. We learn a lot about minor details of Haring's life (his dad helped him deliver newspapers in Kutztown) but little about what makes his art so popular.
Keith Haring was not a great artist. He might not even have been a very good one. But he was the right person in the right place at the right time.
Equally a portrait of the artist and a portrait of a decade, this celebratory documentary makes the short, accelerated life of Keith Haring (1958-1990) inseparable from that short, accelerated period we know as '80s New York.
