Comes off as a murder/ mystery and has a tendency to repeat itself more often than I would like, I mean this film really does drag out. Some scenes are played out so we can get that scene displaying Gogh's famous paintings which makes sense because the film is about his life after all but there's no denying the unique style of the film. Over 100 artists painted each scene and he's hypnotic just to watch it flow.
While this film does sometimes get repetitive and fall into the cliches of that "biography via flashback" narrative style, it's still an exceptional biography that manages to be mysterious and heartbreaking at the same time. And, of course, the hand-drawn animation is just incredible, from the seamless motions and scene transitions, to the clever little touches. It's easily one of the best animated films of 2017.
