"Jeffrey Wright is absolutely brilliant in the role of Jean-Michel Basquiat, the young American painter whose brief life spanned the explosion of money and fame that colored the art world in the 1980s... It's a terrific film, a remarkable first feature by Julian Schnabel... and the performances by Jeffrey Wright, so tender, so restrained, so charismatic, is a great piece of work, certainly worthy of Oscar consideration... it's one of the year's best movies. I know I'll see it again very soon...

Movie Summary

Benjamin Bratt delivers a masterfully vivid portrayal of the startlingly original Latino icon, poet-playwright-actor Miguel Pinero! After doing hard time in prison for drug dealing and petty theft, Pinero turned his prison experiences into the award winning play Short Eyes. Then, as a founder of the famed Nuyorican Poets café on Manhattan's Lower East Side, Pinero crafted an influential style of rhythmic urban poetry that is widely recognized as a precursor to rap and hip-hop.
