Watch David Bowie as Andy Warhol in Basquiat

Remember when David Bowie played Andy Warhol in the 1996 film Basquiat? No? Please watch the entire thing immediately.

In it, he is approached by a young Basquiat with a handful of what he calls “ignorant art.” He persuades Warhol, who at first refuses, to buy a selection of small drawings.

So many actors (including Crispin Glover and Jared Harris) have played Warhol, but Bowieâ’s performance ranks right up there with the best of them. Watch here:
