This stunning biographical drama chronicles the final years of famed painter Vincent Van Gogh (Willem Dafoe).  Directed by Julian Schnabel, the film delves into the tormented mind of the now-iconic artist as he puts paint to canvas in search of meaning beyond the here and now.

Quotes:
“DAFOE’S ELEGIAC QUALITY HINTS AT WHY THE ARTIST WAS AHEAD OF HIS TIME: BECAUSE HE SAW MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE COULD. IT’S A TOWERING PERFORMANCE IN A MOVIE THAT CASTS A MAGNETIC SPELL”
- Chris Hewitt, Star Tribune

“SCHNABEL SUBTLY SALUTES VAN GOGH’S PERSERVERANCE BY UNDERSTANDING HIS NEED TO PAINT IN SPITE OF THE CRUEL, STUPID, WICKED IGNORANCE OF HIS WOLRD”
- Armond White, National Review

“DAFOE FULLY COMMITS TO HIS PERFORMANCE, AS DOES SCHNABEL TO THE PAINTER’S VISION AND HUMANITY. THE RESULT IS A CONSPICUOUS FUSION OF ACTOR, DIRECTOR AND SUBJECT: THREE SOULS CONNECTING, WEDDED TO ART.”
- Leah Pickett, Chicago Reader
