In Theatres: JULIAN SCHNABEL: A PRIVATE PORTRAIT

Coming to theatres today, Friday, May 5:
JULIAN SCHNABEL: A PRIVATE PORTRAIT

Director:
Pappi Corsicato

Premiere:
Tribeca 2017

About:
An affectionate profile of the maverick artist and filmmaker.

Corsicato’s film offers an archivally rich rundown of Julian Schnabel’s artistic and filmmaking career since the 1970s, detailing how he got his start as an artist, the significance of his collaboration with gallery owner Mary Boone, the resultant critical and financial acclaim, and his later turn to filmmaking. Interviews with Schnabel himself are supplemented by a chorus of admirers from family members to past collaborators and fellow art and film world luminaries, while a career retrospective serves as a further excuse to reflect on his work. Scant attention is paid to the controversies his work has attracted, resulting in a serviceable, but fairly one-note, portrait.
