Jackson Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Frida Kahlo: all had rich stories to match their art. And those stories were further dramatized in the aptly-named Hollywood films “Pollock,” “Basquiat,” and “Frida.”

For the next episode of Movies On The Radio, The State of Things wants to know: what are your favorite films about art and artists. Is it the dramedy “My Left Foot?” Or maybe you like your art films in the form a heist movie like “Entrapment.”

Film experts Marsha Gordon and Laura Boyeswill dissect your picks. Submit yours by sending us an e-mail at sot@wunc.org or tweet at us with #SOTmovie for a chance to be on the show.
