At Eternity’s Gate

Dir. Julian Schnabel. UK/Ireland, 2018. 1h 51m. Starring Willem Dafoe, Rupert Friend, Oscar Isaac, Mads Mikkelsen, Mathieu Amalric, Emmanuelle Seigner.

Tormented artist Vincent van Gogh spends his final years in Arles, France, seeking a new visual language, while also struggling to make sense of himself and his connection to those around him. Willem Dafoe earned an Oscar-nomination for his mesmerising performances as the troubled genius painter.

‘Reflecting the fundamental upset in Van Gogh, it articulates better than any "traditional" biopic before the sense of an artist struggling with the limits of the visual, and reaching farther, for something beyond.’ ★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times

‘Haggardly embodied by Dafoe, Vincent is an ingenuous, socially alienated figure aghast at the suffering he must endure.’ Graham Fuller, Sight and Sound Magazine
