I appreciate art, and the art of cinematography. This movie brings both of these things together to recreate a beautiful story of Vincent Van Gogh. They say that those with the most creative minds have the most crazy minds. And this shows his crazy, and confused mind and how his art was produced from that. It is a struggle to see how someone thinks and biographies try to do this on screen. Most of the time, it is usually quite boring but the art work of filming made it incredibly unique.
It’s hard to believe that so many hours went in to painting every single frame and over 100 people went in to doing all that work. It all seemed worth it in the end. If you are a Van Gogh fan, then I would recommend watching it, but then again, if you are, you probably have already seen it.
After watching this, I feel like I have more of an appreciation for his work and see how wonderful each individual piece is and how natural but unnatural they are. And more so his individual story which amazing to see his work live on. He would have never imagined that happening to him. Even clothing and shoe brands have incorporated his work in and I want them all.
I started reading a biography of his story as well and people always compare the books to the movies so I’ll see how that goes. I’m not entirely sure why, but I’m so drawn in by his life and I’m intrigued to see more.
