Downtown 81

The film was never finished and Basquiat died in 1988. In 1999 the film was resurrected and released. The audio had been lost so actor Saul Williams dubbed Basquiat's lines. Tons of 80s village hipsters: James Chance, Amos Poe, Tav Falco, etc.
Soundtrack: Kid Creole and the Coconuts, James White and the Blacks, DNA, Tuxedo Moon, the Plastics, Walter Steding and the Dragon People, Melle Mel, John Lurie, Lydia Lunch, Suicide, Vincent Gallo, Kenny Burrell and Gray
