Julian Schnabel – A Private Portrait is new Pappi Corsicato directed documentary about the personal life and public career of New York artist and filmmaker Julian Schnabel. Willem Dafoe, Al Pacino and Schnabel’s children are some of the featured friends and people closest to him…
I have to confess that the name Julian Schnabel is one I only vaguely recognised before now. It’s news to me that Schnabel cast Javier Bardem in his first big film role (Before Night Falls (2000). How interesting it is to think that without Schnabel, we may not have had the pleasure of enjoying the talents of Bardem quite in the same way as we’ve been able to.
I’m disappointed that this trailer makes it seem as though Schnabel isn’t actually alive but he is, thank goodness. Bring on more of the beautiful art at 0:34 in the trailer.
Happy Film Loving
