Director: Julian Schnabel
Cast: Willem Dafoe, Oscar Isaac, Mads Mikkelsen, Emmanuelle Seigner, Rupert Friend, Niels Arestrup.
Earning him an Oscar® nomination, Willem Dafoe is mesmerising as Vincent van Gogh in this latest from Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butter y). Covering his time in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, we nd a complex, troubled soul who is seeking a new visual language, while also struggling to make sense of himself and his connection to those around him, including Paul Gaugain (Oscar Isaac) and a con ding priest (Mads Mikkelsen). Shot with a painter’s eye, Schnabel’s once again shows his talent for working with complex biography and the lives of artists.
“This man, much like the real one, is acutely aware of his fragilities. Yet by adamantly focusing above all else on van Gogh’s work – and its transporting ecstasies – Schnabel has made not just an exquisite film but an argument for art.” – New York Times
