Directed by Paul Cox. A nuanced, multifaceted portrait of “mad” Vincent van Gogh emerges from this singular film, in which excerpts from Vincent’s many letters to his brother (read here by John Hurt) are paired with finished canvases and with shots of landscapes that the artist might have painted. “The best film about a painter I have ever seen.” –Roger Ebert. Special thanks to Paul Cox and Roxie Releasing (Rick Norris).
