AT ETERNITY’S GATE
2018, CBS Films, 111 min, Dir: Julian Schnabel

Julian Schnabel’s AT ETERNITY’S GATE is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh’s (Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented. With Rupert Friend, Oscar Isaac, Mads Mikkelsen and Mathieu Amalric. “By adamantly focusing above all else on van Gogh’s work - and its transporting ecstasies - Schnabel has made not just an exquisite film but an argument for art.” - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
