Here We Gogh Again!

At Eternity’s Gate
Official Site | Trailers & Mo

PG-13 | 111 min

What a time to be a Vincent van Gogh fan.  A year ago, we got the cinematic treat of a lifetime that was like walking around, and living and breathing in his paintings!!!  And this year, artist and director Julian Schnabel gives us a cinematic treat of his own with At Eternity’s Gate.  The film shows us what it was like to walk alongside Vincent as he went about creating his brilliant art, while living a most turbulent and troubled life.  Schnabel is somehow able to express Vincent’s pain and process channeled through the steady and unsteady hands and face of Willem Dafoe (maybe too perfect a Vincent!).  More poetry than biopic, Eternity delivers on the tall task of getting into Vinny’s head and expressing how he suffered for his art.  Thank you for suffering Vincent.  And thank you Julian and Willem, for somehow materializing that suffering.  Suffering never looked so beautiful.
