Conceived in tandem with Basquiat, Wojaczek shows the last days of the rebellious, self-destructive Rafał Wojaczek, whose poetry (written in communist Poland) has made him a Eastern European countercultural icon.

Majewski finds an appropriately savage yet charming visual style to match Wojaczek’s poetry and life—as A. O. Scott writes in the New York Times, “Just as Wojaczek’s nihilism has a core of passionate wit, so too does the movie.… Gorgeously grim black and white, Mr. Majewski’s camerawork has an almost classical austerity.” (89 mins., 35mm)
