TEC Alum Film is NYT Critic's Pick


Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat, edited by TEC Alum Adam Kurnitz, is now playing at the IFC Center.

Glenn Kenny at the New York Times says, "That Ms. Driver’s new picture, Boom For Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat, is a documentary ought not to dissuade anyone hungry for this filmmaker’s voice. While, in many respects, it is conventional in form, alternating archival footage from the late 1970s and early ’80s with newly shot interviews, the movie has a momentum (aided by an exemplary soundtrack of songs from the era) and a rare interrogatory spirit."
