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.

Fantastic, evocative and surprising. Highly recommended.

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

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.

Magnificent art work!!!

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.

A lovely ,sensitive film of an unusual, misunderstood person.

Truly, a Labor of Love. Touching.

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.

Van Gogh's palettes shift,
come alive, mysterious;
art begetting art.

What a beautiful idea for a Van Gogh film. I thought it visually stunning. Interesting story line. Why not?

I saw this movie in the theater when it was released. It is just as beautiful now as when I saw it. Watch through the end credits, music will take you away.

Tragically beautiful! Well done!

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

I forgot I was watching animation. Loved it.

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

A captivating, wonderfully appealing film, done in an extraordinarily original form that does justice beautifully to exploring the life and death of the film's subject. I just loved it. Loving Vincent is not hard to do.

A simply beautiful film. Incredible to think that each frame has been oil-painted. Truly stunning and worth watching to be transported to a different place.
