“…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.” (New York Times)
“There have been many films about Vincent Van Gough, but none as extraordinary as Julian Schnabel’s version, starring Willem Dafoe in a monumental, career-best performance that lets us feel we’re living Van Gough’s life and not just watching it.” (Rolling Stone)
Academy Award nominee Julian Schnabel’s new film, At Eternity’s Gate, is a journey inside the mind of Vincent van Gogh (Willem Dafoe in a magnificent performance), who, in the face of skepticism, ridicule, and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. Gorgeously shot and creatively told, At Eternity’s Gate is a kaleidoscopic experience that is, at its core, an unwavering ode to the artistic spirit. Also starring Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Ex Machina), Rupert Friend (The Death of Stalin, Showtime’s Homeland), and Mads Mikkelsen (A Royal Affair, NBC’s Hannibal). At Eternity’s Gate was the closing-night selection at the New York Film Festival.
