Jean Michel Basquiat,
A young novelist with a bad case of writer's block clears her mind by answering an ad placed by a man who is driving cross-country and needs a partner. Along the way, she ends up with more writing material than she ever bargained for.
Peace, I've met the director Charlie Ahearn and Nathan Ingram. This film is not only underrated by important. This film gave birth to the film WILD STYLE.
Most of you know that WILD STYLE is recognized internationally as one of the most important films in Hip Hop history.
What's also special about this film, is the real life story of Nathan Ingram, being captured on film.
The director manages to capture an important part of New York history with this film. It could possibly be the first time martial arts cinema and Hip Hop were put together on film. So, all you fans of the Wu Tang, take note.
If you're interested in 70s martial arts films, retro New York and Hip Hop nostalgia, you have to give this film a chance.
