At Eternity's Gate Directed by Julian Schnabel
The film’s beauty, its feel for painting, its emotional intensity, Dafoe’s soul-searching performance—none of these are new to the Van Gogh genre. But like Joan of Arc movies, new Van Gogh films must come out. That’s because it becomes stranger, the farther we get from the lives of the Post-Impressionists, to see once again the crimped way people hated Van Gogh’s paintings in their time.

The effect he achieves is the opposite of the political divisiveness motivating Hollywood’s RBG agitprop.
