UK/2017/93mins/(12A) Dir: Dorota Kobiela, Hugh Welchman With: Saoirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd, Douglas Booth
Comprised of almost 65,000 hand-painted oil stills in the world’s first ‘painted’ film, this one of a kind biopic evokes the delirious, hyper-sensual world suggested by van Gogh’s oeuvre, charting the life and strange death and myths and madness surrounding the ultimate tortured genius artist. Kobiela and Welchman’s singular film unfolds like a blend of Citizen Kane and Waking Life, exploring the mystery of van Gogh’s death – and awing at the inflammable genius that defined the later years of his life – through the recollections of those who knew him best.
