At Eternity's Gate (2019)
Earning him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor, Willem Dafoe is mesmerising as the legendary painter Vincent van Gogh in At Eternity’s Gate.
Covering his time in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, we find a complex, troubled soul who is seeking a new visual language while also struggling to make sense of himself and his connection to those around him, including friend and fellow artist Paul Gauguin (Oscar Isaac) and a priest (Mads Mikkelsen).
Shot with a painter’s eye, Julian Schnabel once again shows his talent for working with complex biography and the lives of artists as in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Basquiat.
