Eriugena82's rating of the film Lust for Life

Not bad, certainly had it's moments, but ultimately I didn't think it was anything particularly captivating. Kirk Douglas puts in a typically excellent (not to mention emotive) performance as Van Gogh...but it's a particularly theatrical version. I found the tone to be a bit too melodramatic; a bit over-the-top...as if Van Gogh was James Dean fighting against the world.
