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 (Oscar Nominee Willem Dafoe) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented. Co-written and directed by Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly).
"Vivid, intensely affecting. Dafoe is magnificent. The movie is a freely subjective portrait of van Gogh by another artist trying to see, paint and feel as he did. 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, New York Times)
