If the controversial, fiery queer photographer Robert Mapplethorpe became part of art history due to his emotive compositions of naked, exposed bodies and exotic, theatrical S&M scenes, this cinematic depiction of his (shot in 16mm film) will be remembered in film history as the most nuanced anaglyph of the portrait of an artist as a young man. A movie that uniquely captures the spirit of New York in the late 70s, as well as the defiant spirit of a personality that still affects the aesthetics and emotions of our era.
