Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
While it doesn't offer any answers, it both thrills and makes you think.
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
I found the the film visually stimulating to the eye although once I got over that I found myself distracted by the casting of the film.... one the accents do not fit the setting of the film which is 1890's France, thus having a range of British and Irish accents did not draw me into the film... the actors of the film appeared to be on a green screen at some points, although beautifully presented during close ups when full body shots were present the subject in the landscape appeared to be out of place. Saying that, the black and white scenes to me appears to be the stand out part of the film with its semi-realistic yet painterly effect was truly stunning. That being said the film as a whole was a wonderful hybrid between fine art and cinema.
The premise and concept of making every frame a painting Is beyond words spectacular and needs to be appreciated but with such an amazing visual, the movie could have been a lot better by telling more of Vincent instead of focusing on a man going back and forth to see how people thought Vincent died or how they would portray him, Vincent was a genius and this is just briefly mentioned on the movie, they could have talked much more about how Vincent tried to be happy and tried to see the world so colorful and full of life even when he himself was awfully depressed and slowly going mad instead of making the movie only focusing on his lower points wich Is BEYOND unfair to such an intriguing personality like Vincent Van Gogh
I have waited a long time to see this movie, in fact I wanted to see this movie since the first trailer for its kickstarter campaign came out back in 2012 and I have to say that the wait was absolutely worth it. This movie is wonderful. Its not only one of the best looking film I have ever seen but also the story was beautifully told, from starting more as a documentary but unfolding more and more like a crime drama always keeping up the interest. The actors did a marvelous job here and the soundtrack as well was quite fitting. It is always refreshing to see new ideas crafted so excellently and excitingly. This movie is sure to become a classic and is definitly one of the best 2017.
Ever frame in this movie is absolutely gorgeous. The story telling is phenomenal and captivating. I would absolutely recommend this film
