Willem Defoe shines in this biopic, which focuses on the last years of Van Gogh’s troubled life, highlighting his friendship with Gauguin. It succeeds in capturing the essence of ‘now’, immersing the viewer in the physicality of Van Gogh’s painting. It does justice to the fiercely painful love between Gauguin and Van Gogh, but some of the best scenes are of Van Gogh confronting other human beings. His passion and frenzied inspiration overwhelm and astonish people, resulting in derision, suspicion and fear. Starring: Willem Defoe. Director: Julian Schnabel. Runtime: 111mins. 201
