8/23: Last Call for ‘Radiant Child,’ Pop-Up Taqueria…

…and Bonnie & Clyde sunset Bryant Park’s summer film series

Telemundo Local/Jazive Pérez

TAGGED: If you haven’t seen the dazzling documentary Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child, know that it leaves Film Forum on Tuesday. Tamra Davis’ documentary not only brings together never-before-seen footage of the iconic graffiti artist and new insights from everyone who was anyone in the 1980s NYC art scene, it drops you into that time and place without any of the usual muddy-eyed nostalgia—but with a resulting (exhilarating) vertigo at how the city has changed. 6, 8, 10PM.

ONE NIGHT ONLY: Pop-up West Coast taqueria, you say? We’re listening. Mark Andrew Gravel—the man behind a little something called Food + Sex magazine—brings just that to Williamsburg’s East River Patio. Sample tacos made with locally-sourced fare and rooftop-garden veg, and don’t miss goodies like Mast Brothers chocolate and brewed-nearby suds specials. RSVP for Black & Cream: A Pop-up Taqueria at foodsexart.com, 7PM.

HOLE IN ONE: Warren Beatty stepped into a producerly role for the very first time for Arthur Penn's 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde, based on the notorious life and death of one of the world’s greatest criminal couples (and what a death it was – authorities shot a combined 130 rounds of ammunition at the Ford where Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow ended their days). The HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival signs off for 2010 with the wildly stylish crime caper; lawn opens at 5PM, movie at dusk.
