  Klimt Movie
Another film based on the life of an artist being made. A Gustav Klimt film is being made with John Malkovich playing the role of Gustav Klimt.
To be honest, I have never really found much inspiration in movies about artists. Frida was just ok, Pollock was pretty good, but Basquiat has been the only artist film I have watched more than once. The Basquiat movie has a great soundtrack to paint with too...
Basquiat Soundtrack
1. Van Gogh Boat - (dialogue)
2. Public Image - Public Image Ltd.
3. It's All Over Now Baby Blue - Them - (featuring Van Morrison)
4. Suicide Hotline (Dialogue And Music Montage) - Nick Marion Taylor
5. I'm Not In Love - Toadies
6. Is That All There Is? - PJ Harvey
7. White Lines - Grandmaster Flash/Melle Mel
8. Rise - Tripping Daisy
9. These Days - Joy Division
10. She Is Dancing - Brian Kelly
11. Tom Traubert's Blues - Tom Waits
12. Small Plot Of Land, A - David Bowie
13. Summer In Siam - The Pogues
14. Last Song I'll Ever Sing, The - Gavin Friday
15. Hallelujah - John Cale

There's also an interesting story on stolen art over at the CricketChurping blog.

I enjoyed Basquiat as well. Frida, too.

Related, I also enjoyed "I Shot Andy Warhol" for its combination of art news, feminism, and mental illness. What a trio! It featured Lili Taylor, a pro at playing a nut.

Also, for the obscure, I appreciated the Artemisia Gentileschi flick:

Great combination, movies and art.
 
I have to say that I also enjoyed the Basquiat movie, as well as the Artemisa one too.
 
There are many good movies about artists: Camille Claudel, Love is the Devil (Francis Bacon), Modigiliani.
