Review

James Crump’s directorial debut tackles the beguiling relationship between old-money curator Wagstaff and working-class provocateur Mapplethorpe, whose professional and personal coming together transformed the art of photography and helped define the burgeoning gay-liberation movement. Its tendency to get bogged down in pop psychology notwithstanding, Crump’s film offers a detailed, and occasionally quite touching, portrait.
