At Eternity's Gate

Willem Dafoe picked up his fourth Oscar nomination for his searing portrayal of tortured Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. Artist-turned-filmmaker Julian Schnabel’s (‘Basquiat’, ‘The Diving bell and the Butterfly’) account of Van Gogh’s final years is a visually rapturous drama, more interested in the man’s deteriorating psyche than his process as a painter. And in Dafoe he has his perfect foil. It’s an all-consuming performance. He’s supported by Rupert Friend as his brother Theo and Oscar Isaac as Paul Gaugin. But the highpoint is the sparring between Vincent and Mads Mikkelsen’s priest.
