I liked it, the style of the painting took us into the world of Van Gogh. I think the film makers did a fine job by weaving a story from the subjects in Van Gogh's paintings. This isn't the best film I have ever seen but as a fan of Van Gogh's art I have a new perspective of his life and ...Read more

Wonderful. I'm inspired by his art, and I enjoyed this artistic presentation of his life in his artistic style.

Beautiful film to look at. The think the painted film style carried the passion of van Gogh justly.
Interesting story about van Gogh.

Don't think I'll finish this so I'm sad I used one of my view-counts. The technique is impressive as fact but not as experience. Instead of bringing a loose painterly quality to the animation it merely distracts like a textured filter. It's clearly rotoscoped (which is totally understandable, ...Read more

Gorgeous-looking,well-acted animated film that while didn't solve the mystery of Van Gogh's death;makes you think twice about it.

If you enjoyed this, I highly suggest "At Eternities Gate" -- told from many different perspectives; and goes more into detail about his death.

this flick straight heat bruh. I don't even rock with Vincent like that simply cause I find art curators and tastemakers' opinions useless but shoutout to all my struggling artist out there.

Innovative production concept, but the schmalz factor was too much for me.

Have seen much of Van Gogh's work for 60+ years and have read his published letters (titled Dear Theo) twice. Highly recommend his museum in Amsterdam. The movie is quite wonderful! But, difficult to compute it too 100+ artists and a corporate budget to deal with what Vincent (with the ...Read more

Never knew much about this topic before going into it. After it, I know a lot and it's VERY Good. I'm trying to think about what I would say to describe it. Sometimes, art doens't need that.

Also see Richard Linklater's 2001 lucid dream called "Waking Life." And if you're interested in the breakout process of creating animation overlaid on a video foundation, here's a two-minute introduction… Read more

A process called rotoscoping invented in 1915, See Fleischer's "Gulliver's Travels" here on Kanopy for an earlyish example by the inventor of the process.

To view this film is a sensual and emotion experience like none other.

The story is presented as an attempt to solve the mystery of a great artist's death. It's compelling and absorbing though the script is a bit overdone. Visually it is stunning and the manner is which each frame of the film is wrought is brilliant, right down to the closing credits.

Every frame in this movie is a work of art - literally. The paintings are incredible, bursting with color, texture, and rarely standing still. There are scenes and images in this movie that would be considered beautiful if they were shot with a regular camera. The fact that they're all ...Read more

Why did I wait so long to view this film? Because the more I learn about Vincent van Gogh, the more my heart breaks for him. This film, with its homage to van Gogh's artistic style weaves an unexpectedly engrossing tale. It is a tribute to a brilliant artist's tragically short life and as ...Read more

Glorious and inspiring in content, form and spirit. It's so infrequent in film to find humble creativity in service to humanity, compassion, and the arts - nevermind such a masterful use of technology to elevate an art form by transcending previously assumed limitations of what is possible. ...Read more

so great! The book Letters To Theo is simply amazing.. like a bible for an artist. This was done very well to portray how his death happened with really cool animation.

Hannah Gadsby was talking about Pablo Picasso in her "epic takedown," not Vincent van Gogh.

I tried watching it but after watching Hannah Gadsby's epic takedown of Van Gogh in Nanette, it's hard to watch anything about him, knowing what he is.

I have not seen Hannah Gadsby's "epic takedown," but your reply promoted me to look for it. My brief search proves nothing, but I could not find anything negative she said, as reported on the site that I read, about Van Gogh himself, just remarks on the improper mythologizing of mental ...Read more

Just have to jump in and say...Gadsby's epic takedown was actually of Picasso, not Van Gogh. She had more issue with how OTHERS interpret Van Gogh's genius and mental health.

It's on Netflix, Stephen. And it's a great takedown. It's made for everyone but especially men who believe in separating the art from the artist.

While watching one can imagine, perhaps, seeing the world through the eyes of the artist, a mystery unravels, Rashaman style, imagining how others might have viewed and experienced this unique, remarkable artist.

Exceptional artistry -- well done. Fascinating story line, it left me wondering how much of it is factual and what is speculation. My heart aches for Van Gogh because of the internal and external torment he lived with. Such a good lesson that one must never judge another, for tenderness ...Read more

Amazingly beautiful film. The portrait of Van Gogh's final days told through his paintings and letters was captivating. The visuals were wonderful and extremely well done. I will want to watch this movie again just to enjoy again the beautiful visual images. I highly recommend this film.

The piecing together of Van Gogh's final days through his paintings and letters weaves the work of this master into a gorgeous biopic. One of the most unique pictures of last year.

One of my biggest thrills was visiting the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in 1988. Watching this extraordinary film is a close second. I am in tears.

Honestly it didn't do much for me. The story was poor, the dialog was poor . Some pastiche of expressive brushstroke is not what van gogh was about. There is some great innovative filmaking in sections and it's heart is in the right place but it was a struggle for me to get through. The ...Read more
