While there have been many other biopics about the Post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh, this is the first to be directed by another acclaimed visual artist, Julian Schnabel. As such, it focuses more on van Gogh’s creative process than on his tragic demise. As Schnabel said, “This is a film about painting and a painter and their relationship to infinity.” The film’s touching portrayal of a complex man is aided by Willem Dafoe’s Oscar-nominated performance. In English and French with English subtitles.
