Critic Reviews for Loving Vincent
An extraordinary (and entirely demented) labor of love that makes for a wan and uneven viewing experience, "Loving Vincent" takes the phrase "every frame a painting" to very literal new levels.
Brings a poetic sense of tragedy to the last act of van Gogh's life, and fresh insight into the kind of man he was.
There are enough traces of the artist himself in the movie, from his many paintings to the famous letters he wrote to his brother and benefactor Theo, to please both experts and newbies, who should enjoy watching his work come to life on screen.
The titillating theme is that Van Gogh's gunshot wound was not self-inflicted, but what makes this movie sui generis is that it is the first fully painted feature film.
Audience Reviews for Loving Vincent
A major effort in the making it must surely be an event to screen, 'Loving Vincent' is a fascinating and truly beautiful animated feature most stunningly of all is that the entire film, frame-by-frame is rotoscoped in the unique and stunning oil paint style of the late painter to tell a compelling, fascinating and heartwarming story about an investigation into the life of the posthumous master painter. Even with authentic settings and a cast of colourful character both figuratively and literally, the film is a hugely investing and outstandingly beautiful film to see, almost verging from the very dramatic plotting to the eye catching surrealist aspect of the art-house sphere this film is fixed within. While it's hard to determine whether or not the mystery of the late painter's death can be explained, especially alongside the historical accuracy aspect of this film, everything else about it from the initial premise alone is enough to recommend to all audiences young and old to experience even well before you could say 'Oscar for Best Animated Film' since the oil work paintings are it's signature look while the feel comes from the technical and written aspects alone. I wish I could give this my perfect grade though something inside me is doubting it figuratively especially along the lines of historical accuracy and overall sustenance.
