        "Well, Benicio del Toro wasn't the star of this movie but he certainly stole some key scenes with his performance in Basquiat. That goes to show how powerful an actor del Toro is. While Jeffrey Wright is a good actor in his own right, I think this movie benefitted by casting del Toro."

        "Basquiat is a movie I watched on a whim. I had never heard of Jeffrey Wright, and I had neve heard of his character, Jean-Michel Basquiat. I really enjoyed the movie and the topic of an unusual style of art (graffiti). From what I understand, the movie is highly accurate."

        "As an art fan I really enjoy movies about artists, and I've been on a painter kick lately. I've admired Basquiat's paintings but don't know much about him, so watching this movie was a real treat, made even better with the great story and acting."
