After dinner with his parents, during the scene when Robert photographs the knife and the flower the knife is held in place by a "Mathellini" clamp. The original Cardellini wasn't invented until the 1990s, after Robert's death. See more »
Matt Smith is woefully miscast as Mapplethorpe, but the story and the dialogue don't do him any favours. This is not the Mapplethorpe of "Just Kids" or any interview that I have read. The production seems scared of itself and really brushes over sensitive subjects rather than take them on headlong. Mapplethorpe's story deserves a better telling than this.
