a vital revelation of a uniquely talented compulsively driven artist
5 May 2008 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

This 90 minute documentary on the life of Keith Haring is thoroughly entertaining, moving and rewarding. It will screen on24th May 2008 at the Brisbane Queer Film Festival in their smaller 200 seat venue, the Visy Theatre. However having just previewed a screener DVD I'm wishing it was at least in their bigger venue, because we see that plenty of Keith's work was on a very grand scale.

That fact is made all the more astonishing by the revelation that he never worked from sketches - we're witnessing the life and creations of true unblinking genius.

This is a gay relevant, but certainly not a gay-specific story. It's about an extraordinary man who realised the full potential of his ability to create and love and live. Through testimony from his friends and family we also know that Keith was not only a lovely but also very generous guy.

Keith Haring was so prolific that you really have to keep your eyes peeled for the multitude of his works included here. Anyone with a vocation for art will be inspired. Everyone else will be enthralled. We (and many future generations) will all celebrate his life.

Superbly edited and a fitting tribute.
