Horrifying - but informative - tragic biography of Van Gogh, with a look at his painting technique and location filming of the places he lived. Full Review

4 stars out of 5 -- Minnelli's vivid palette, all burnished yellows and turbulent blues, conveys something of the artist's fiery intensity.
May 1, 2006
Rating: 7/10 -- The movie, attractive as it may be, never 'breaks through the iron wall' between what is felt and what is expressed, the very wall that van Gogh himself strove to overcome. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- The Best Actor Oscar that year went to Yul Brynner for his broad emoting in The King and I, but Douglas -- in one of the defining performances of his career -- would have been a far more deserving winner. Full Review

Rating: B -- A competently made and acted biopic on the Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh (Kirk Douglas), that's nevertheless uninspiring. Full Review
