An insightful and moving portrayal of Van Gogh's life.
Verified purchase
Willem Dafoe is excellent in this role. He brings a sensitivity to the troubled character of Vincent Van Gogh in this film. This, in my opinion, is probably the most insightful and true to life portrayal of Van Gogh's later years in life. Julian Schnabel as director has brought a sense of believable human interactions and how mental health issues manifest within the individual and affects others. Vincent's brother Theo is portrayed with feeling and shown in a supportive and loving role. Gaugin too is very believable in his interactions with Van Gogh. This is a film is a must watch if you enjoy watching character driven films and are intersted in the arts.

In Van Gogh's shoes
Verified purchase
Probably the best film about a painter that I've seen, alongside Basquiat from the same director, Julian Schnabel who is himself a painter. Highly recommended.

Great performance but embarrassing storytelling!
Verified purchase
The story of van gogh is actually a interesting one, but this film amazingly kills all that, with its repetitive focus that does not move us any closer to VVG. The style is non consistent too, and the music is dominant and not very compelling. Willem Delfoe delivers a great performance, but the story telling is so clumsy, that we really never get under the skin of the story.

An outstanding film about an outstanding artist.
Verified purchase
This is an outstanding film and especially for any drawn to Vincent Van Gogh. Willem Defoe bears an uncanny resemblance to the artist but more crucially absolutely enters the complex creative and psychological world of Van Gogh. Focusing on the last period of his life, the film avoids clichés and is paced like a slow sonata. Memorable.

Worth a watch I suppose

Tiny Welsh wife is an artist. She made me watch this. I like Willem Dafoe. How they managed to fit 17 hours of a befuddled artist wandering about into a 1hr 51mins film is a miracle of the modern screen. At the end of the film I was longing for Eternity's Gate. My Wife likes art. Sometimes she is cruel to me.

Really wated to give 4.5 as some of the dialogue is difficult to follw .
My wife has studied V G and thoruoghly enjoyed it.
Acting is strong. One particular scene with the priset and Van Gough is so memorable.
Its a very intense film but will not suit all viewers

Difficult film to watch
Verified purchase
Willem Dafoe's portrayal of Vincent van Gogh was excellent, but I disliked this film; it was difficult to watch, with the camera 'bouncing', sweeping around the room, or pointing down at the feet. It made me feel quite queasy at times.
The 'plonky' music was unpleasant.
