New York movie to watch: Downtown 81

I have been wanting to watch artist Jean-Michel Basquiat playing himself in O'Brien and
Bertoglio's New York Beat movie for a while, and now when we are very soon flying
over to the city it was no longer any question.

New wave blends with hiphop, the worn-down Lower East Side is the canvas for 
graffiti art and legendary creatives, there is spontaneity,clubs, witty lines,
Debbie Harry, DNA and Kid Creole. - Certainly "an extraordinary real-life snapshot
of hip, arty, clubland Manhattan in the post-punk era..."

Make sure you get to see this film now!
