As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings are his passionate and ill-fated life and mysterious death.

Landmark animation; & I eventually understood, some way through, that they'd been clever after all in their choice of narrative structure; over-simple at first, but paced like a noir, hypnotic over time & compelling, like the visuals, so you can't but get absorbed. An art story for - everyone - but esp. for artists - affirming/darkly romantic; (need that sometimes!). + Completely next level visual/sensory engagement.
While the plot itself is slightly unfocussed, it comes together beautifully at the end, and the art direction more than makes up for it in what could not be a more loving tribute to one of the most masterful artists in history.
If being a mark on animation isn't enough, Loving Vincent keeps the balance of telling an interesting (almost crime fiction) story while being visualy mesmerizing, whose layers of paint still preserve the all-star cast who portraits these characters. Definitely a piece of art that lives up to Van Gogh's work.
Just so happens that Vincent van Gogh and his last days mean a tremendous amount to me, so I am in a sense the ideal audience for LOVING VINCENT, which is inarguably a sensational psychotropic visual experience along w/ being a deftly-conceived CITIZEN KANE-style recursive investigation narrative. I like the idea that Vincent himself is a true event: the world he left behind was newly vision'd in his stead.
I had high expectations for this film after discovering the care and attention put into each frame of the trailer. And it was only as the credits played that I noticed I had been mesmerised throughout! A breathtakingly detailed and riveting portrayal of the final stage of Van Gough's life, told wonderfully through the eyes of various characters, all of course based on the sketches and paintings of the artist himself.
[CinemaCity Alvalade: 11h] I I follow I follow rivers. Correction: I I breastfeed newborn creeks, that will soon become mighty rivers stormily flowing to an even bigger ocean of sorrowful tears. tea hers. the hearse. death. liquid to dust. 'i was the oldest brother but i was not the first' *heart breaks* /'He felt too much' </3 I loved how everyone had his/her own version of the facts & views on Gogh as a man/artist▽
Por supuesto, uno no puede hacer menos que quitarse el sombrero ante la titanica y paciente labor de los más de setecientos artistas y animadores que se dedicaron a pintar cuadro por cuadro cada uno de los miles de fotogramas que conforman esta película. No obstante, el guión (atiborrado de clichés) no alcanza para nada el mismo nivel, y todo el asunto termina por quedarse en una mera sucesión de "imágenes bonitas".
