    Warhol looks like my aunt

  3. joshua Yeager

    I’d never seen Basquiat in video footage before talking and seeing him with Warhol shows just how perfect both Jeffery Wright and David Bowie we’re portraying them in film. The movie is so underrated.

    Sorry - but the evidence that Shakespeare's plays were in fact written(brace yourselves!) by a *woman* is at least as credible as everything that Bate tells us: his plummy-voiced, "almost posh" BBC accent - with its inherent absolute self-assurance - will be enough to convince the credulous majority that Bate speaketh the absolute, de facto truth. No - I am now 99% convinced that the Duchess of Pembroke(Mary Sidney Herbert) wrote all or most of Shakespeare's plays and sonnets - although Emilia Bassano is another top contender in the authorship debate.

    Если бы не его отношения с Энди - не было бы его и его творчества. По сути он безграмотный парень, курильщик, который просто веселился и хотел комфорта и хайпа. И симпатичный был)))) что и помогло ему в короткой карьере)) приглянулся Энди и все. Энди был уже в таком закуренном и изнеможденном состоянии, что его мог взять любой молодой красивый парень. ...

    Sean Connery's Harry Hotspur was magnificent. The words rolled off his tongue as if it were his natural speaking voice, and the character came alive.


    More heroin for Mr. Basquiat - can you even draw a straight line phony art gallery's pumped this no talent

  8. spiderman3670

    Andy Warhol is a POS. Hopefully he gets whats coming to him for what he did to Edie Sedgwick...

    Basquiat was such a trash artist. He was only famous because Andy Warhol sucked his dick.

  16. badjemima

    Powerful words. Beautiful speaker. Evil regime.

  17. H Horsley

    This speech is underestimated by history. The British & Dominion Governments could have done far more to stop Apartheid, but thought it was better to mind their own business, and they made the same bloody mistake in Rhodesia.

    I didnt like this movie because it makes no sense, but that’s just me

    1. Zembo177

      They also made Richard the Third Nazi-themed with Ian McKellen, so why not?

    2. Kevin Lu WX

      It only doesn't make sense if you aren't familiar with Shakespeare.

    3. unclejoeoakland

      @Saaga Bragi yeah but people do that all the time with Shakespreare. For instance- with just a few modifications, MacBeth was transposed to feudal Japan as kurosawa's Throne Of Blood. Or more inkeeping with the pattern, Nigel Hawthorne starred in a King Lear done in the Noh theater tradition of Japan. And Ralph Fiennes recent "Coriolanus." It just happens a lot because the themes aren't so topical- they're common to humanity.

    4. Saaga Bragi

      @unclejoeoakland among other things, it set in a communist country during the cold war but everybody has a scottish name

    So I see a promo for "The Good Fight", and I'm like . . . who is that? So I search for a list of the cast, and run across her name. An odd name. So I go to youtube to see what she's done. And now I'm on a little viewed vid of her doing this Malcolm X iconic speech. Consider me a new fan.


    Basquiat’s downward spiral came when people started to realize that Basquiat couldn't draw and had no real artistic skills - Basquiat was an invention of Andy Warhol & the NYC galleries - promoting a one tick pony $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    1. Juan Perez

      NO. His downward spiral came 'cause he was using too many drugs....that's what killed him.

    2. Tim Watson

      the art world is wrong guys....MASTER BLASTER says that Basquiat had no real artistic skills....guess we should all just go home....


    Warhol found out that Basquiat couldn't draw and had no real artistic talent other than attitude & look - 15 minutes of fame in the art world - Basquiat was a creation of the art gallery sales promotion team - Andy had gone full circle and became part of his own creation - mass marketing at its finest - investors & gallery owners made a fortune - Basquiat also helped by overdosing on heroin and dying young - limiting the supply of garbage art for sale driving the price up

    1. Brandon Cook

      basquiat couldn't draw? are you f'ing kidding me?

    2. Hlhi Hlhi

      " Basquiat was a creation of the art gallery sales promotion team " this was the 80´s you moron not now

  60. melvina628

    Basquiat is so talented. I wish he had survived the art machine.

  61. Gerald Vos

    I visited the Tate when Marsyas was there, absolutely staggering in proportions obviously but it did something else to that vast space too - made it sort of more accessible. Perhaps because you could touch the sculpture at either end (which I did) and therefor touch the uppermost region of that hall in one movement... I went to the Tate after Marsyas had left, and it simply wasn't the same at first. Until the next installation came along of course 😜, as there's always something worthwhile going on in there...

    Get Cudi to play him in a movie!

  64. Amerikings Will billi

    Oh now I see why art is so expensive. It’s a gay sacrifice.

  65. 666VeniVidiVici666

    Kid Cudi should play Basquiat!

    1. Tash Moore


    2. J Raikes

      I 100% agree

    3. Niyah I. Minor

      j cole should

    4. AvecPoésie

      @Jesse Not to compare Kid Cudi to Jeffrey Wright, but Kid Cudi has acted. I am weary of expressions like "real actor" because exceptional performances can sometimes come from surprising individuals.

  77. Ilikebeaversandeaglesupyourass

    I’ve always found their work to be juvenile and colossally overrated.

  78. scott simmons

    Highly overrated. New Yorkers just needed a Modern Black Artist to add some "color" to their scene. And he was at the right place and at the right time.

    1. Francesca Milk

      I disagree. And even agreeing, being in the right plac at the right time and be able to ride the wave, is (an) art

    2. Mark

  99. Eamonn Morris

    He still doesn't GET 'syllable' ... the most perfect and unusual, almost postmodern, word in the whole piece. I have watched Gielgud, McLellan and all the rest do this soliloquy, and NONE of them GET 'syllable'!. They make nothing of it - the best-sounding, most important-meaning word in the whole thing!

    1. Eamonn Morris

      @soldierside365 Thanks for your comment. Just keen. I have a couple of degrees but I am not an academic and have never taught or published. I am basically a 'language nerd' and an admirer of the actor's art too.

    2. soldierside365

      Eamonn Morris very insightful. Are you an academic or just keen?

    3. Eamonn Morris

      @soldierside365 Even though we know the soliloquy well, the actor's job is to deliver it as if he is just creating it for the first time. I focus on the word 'syllable' because that is an unexpected, unusual yet perfect word choice that gives the actor the opportunity to really make his own of it in this way. Time - the whole theme of the piece - does not move in syllables; only words do. Yet when Shakespeare expresses it that way we can know exactly what he is talking about; we can feel the 'weight' and the pressure and the sadness and the bitterness of time's passage in our own lives just as in the actor's life who is delivering the line. To me the actor has a challenge to make that happen here, and in most cases does not.

    4. soldierside365

      What’s there to get? Genuine curiosity here..

  100. MrKajithecat

    I honestly feel nobody was actually accepting of Jean-Michel despite the fame and acclaim. He was a fresh and hot face in the art scene who would make people tons of money but even then people had him at arms length because of his race and background. I feel he felt that also, probably why he was always on the defense and slightly confused he was given this chance. He went from NYC street drifter/graffer to artist superstar rubbing elbows with the upper elite in such a short time. I feel his drug usage got worse as he gripped his alienation among this mostly white group of people. I can't even make out his relationship with Andy honestly. Did he trust Andy and see him as a friend or someone using him to give his own career a fresh look? I love Basquiat and I feel he did something great but I do question the motives of those around him. Does anyone feel the same way? Have another take?
