Lech Majewski, a poet and screenwriter for Basquiat (1996), directs this stylized biopic of Polish rebel Rafal Wojaczek, who became the stuff of folklore after his spectacular 1971 suicide. Drunk and depressed, Wojaczek walks through windows, jumps from two story buildings, and gets into frequent fights. Though he has frequent sexual dalliances with the nursing staff during his recurrent trips to the hospital, his true love remains his poetry.
