Movie Description:
During a self-imposed exile in Arles and Auvers-Sur-Oise, France, Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh develops his unique, colorful style of painting. While grappling with religion, mental illness and a tumultuous friendship with French artist Paul Gauguin, van Gogh begins to focus on his relationship with eternity rather than the pain his art causes him in the present..

    When he was an infant, he suffered from the 'Spider Mites of Jesus' (his mother couldn't pronounce spinal meningitis). This caused mental challenges that resulted in his lifelong illiteracy. At 13, he began selling his body on the streets as a drag prostitute. When he was arrested, he took a dump in the back of the police car, leading the cops to give him the moniker: Dirtwoman. Since then he's run for mayor, got arrested at a governor's inauguration, posed for his own pin-up calendar (weighing in at 350 pounds), offered crabs from his crotch for a GWAR video and hosted the annual Hamaganza fundraiser that provided 'Hams for the Hamless.' When he died last year at 65, it was on the front page, top-of-the-fold of the Richmond Times-Dispatch and was featured nationally on NPR.



My Rating : 0/10

Horrible filmmaking. One of the most boring film experiences I've had in a theatre, the shaky camera, repetitive dialogues, lack of structure, lack of storyline, this is an absolute mess!

I hated every single second of this god-awful excuse for a film.

Getting into Van Gogh's Mind

As mentioned by Willem Dafoe during his interview at the Academy Awards ceremony, the intention of this film was never to be a crowd-pleaser, standard biopic. This aim of 'At Eternity's Gate' was to tell a story from a whole different perspective. The technique and point of view is supposed to make you see and feel just like Van Gogh did during his last days. If you really immerse yourself into the film, you'd realise it almost feels like a virtual reality experience. Maybe this film should have been made in a VR format.

I admit that 'Loving Vincent' is a far superior film about the artist. Nevertheless, I appreciated the unique style of this film as I was able to see the world through Van Gogh's eyes. The camera movements, open shots, vexatious music and cinematography really put me in a trance. Dafoe's characterisation is definitely Oscar-worthy. However, this is not a film for the faint-hearted. This film is melancholic, experimental and even psychedelic at times. So please avoid it if you enjoyed Bohemian Rhapsody and the like.

Score: 8/10

At Eternity's Gate (2019)

Whilst Julian Schnabel's film won't have a major audience who appreciate the majesty and glory of the film, he has a found a lover in me.

This film was beautifully shot, scored and performed. Willem Dafoe was simply magnetic as the misunderstood, brilliant and ultimately tragic Vincent. His performance forced you to look inside the man himself and understand him when others couldn't.

A strong supporting cast of Oscar Isaac in a role and genre I'd love to see him more in. Mads Mikkelsen gives a strong nuanced performance whilst Emmanuelle Seigner, Mathieu Amalric and Rupert Friend gave dedicated performances even with the lack of screentime.

The cinematography is just wonderful but will definitely not be for all, this is certainly an acquired taste but luckily my palette was craving for a taste of this kind of cinema.

The score was suitably composed and the editing was brave. That's what this film was, brave. Schnabel's superb direction knew his picture wasn't going to be for everyone but he didn't hold back with strong directorial decisions, making sure he represented Van Gogh in a terrific and tragic way.

The unconventional and appropriately controversial choices all worked in my favour, the pretentiousness was applauded in my eyes, the artistry commended which gave this film a visceral, haunting and beautiful artistic touch to a already great story.

This is not a film for everybody, but in my eyes its a superbly directed, sharply performed and brilliantly (if not a little mad) constructed piece of cinema.
