Portrait of a genius

Directed by Julian Schnabel, At Eternity’s Gate tells the story of the final years of Vincent van Gogh, speculating that his death was caused by mischief rather than suicide. It is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite scepticism, ridicule and mental illness, created some of the world’s most iconic works of art.
Emotionally needy, psychologically troubled and socially isolated, Willem Dafoe’s portrayal of Van Gogh captures every bit
of the artist’s complexity. With stunning scenography, Schnabel draws us into both Van Gogh’s genius and his tortured life.
