SWIFF’19 ENCORE

Painter-turned-director, Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) offers a luminous present-tense drama about the last days of Vincent van Gogh, and in the process revivifies our sense of the artist as a living, feeling human being. Schnabel has stated that he didn’t want to make a film about Van Gogh, but a film where the viewer is Van Gogh. A film about what it is to be an artist.

Schnabel and cinematographer Benoit Delholmme strip everything down to essentials – the cinematography a work of art in itself – fusing the sensual, the emotional, and the spiritual. At the pulsing heart of At Eternity’s Gate is Willem Dafoe’s shattering performance: his Vincent is at once lucid, mad, brilliant, helpless, defeated, and, finally, triumphant.

A film that boasts a formidable cast, including Oscar Isaac as Gauguin, Rupert Friend as Theo, Mathieu Amalric as Dr. Gachet, Emmanuelle Seigner as Madame Ginoux, and Mads Mikkelsen as The Priest.

 “This is a film about painting and a painter and their relationship to infinity” – Julian Schnabel
