Dir: Julian Schnabel | UK/USA/France | 2018 | 111 mins
Cast: Willem Dafoe, Oscar Isaac, Rupert Friend, Mads Mikkelsen
Willem Dafoe gives a magnificent, Oscar-nominated performance as Vincent Van Gogh in painter-filmmaker Julian Schnabel’s (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) portrait of the famously troubled post-Impressionist artist. Shot on location in the south of France, it follows Van Gogh through his difficult final years as he struggles to make a living and maintain bonds with the people in his life – including his brother Theo (Rupert Friend) and painter Paul Gauguin (Oscar Isaac). A heartfelt film, At Eternity’s Gate pushes its sympathetic imagination inside the mind of the artist to depict Van Gogh’s ecstatic creative response to the beauty of the natural world alongside his tremendously painful sense of isolation.
