Julian Schnabel’s ravishingly tactile and luminous new film takes a fresh look at the last days of Vincent Van Gogh, and in the process revivifies our sense of the artist as a living, feeling human being.
At heart, this is a work of sheer imagination, an ode to the artistic spirit and to having a conviction so absolute that you must devote your life to it.
And the pulsing heart of At Eternity’s Gate is Willem Defoe’s shattering performance: his Vincent is at once lucid, mad, brilliant, helpless, defeated, and, finally, triumphant.
The result is a kaleidoscopic movie experience — one that becomes just as much about the role of the artist in the world, about being alive and reaching for the eternal, as it is about the beauty and wonder Van Gogh left behind, never knowing his profound impact.
Willem Dafoe won the Best Actor award at the Venice Film Festival. At Eternity’s Gate was the Closing Night film at the New York Film Festival.
