I won’t be able to see Ondi Timoner‘s Mapplethorpe (Boston Diva, Interloper) until the big Tribeca Film Festival debut screening on Sunday, 4.22. The unsubtle poster seems to promise a leathery, fetishy biopic of the late, much celebrated photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. It’ll serve as a companion piece, one presumes, to Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato‘s Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures, a leathery, fetishy documentary that I saw during Sundance ’16. Matt Smith (Doctor Who) plays Mapplethrope; Marianne Rendon (Imposters) plays Patti Smith; John Benjamin Hickey plays Mapplethorpe’s lover, friend and benefactor Sam Wagstaff.
