Art at the cinema!

This is a review of Loving Vincent which I saw today as part of the Into Film Festival. I saw this film at Vue, Livingston.

Art at the cinema!

Today I went to the cinema to see a movie called Loving Vincent. It was about the life of the artist Vincent Van Gogh. This film was amazing, because it was made up of lots of different paintings all put together to make a flip book type film, which must have taken ages. This film was even more amazing because all these pictures were based on some of Vincent's paintings, and we could see these paintings in certain scenes in the film. The film was about a man who was trying to find out more about Vincent's death. We learn lots about Vincent in flash backs when this man asks them about Vincent and what he did, where he was at what time, etc. This film was directed by Hugh Welchman ad Dorota Kobiela and was painted by over 100 different artists. This film was part of the film festival, but if you ever get the chance you should definitely see this movie!

    your review makes this sound almost magical, and it's interesting that 100 artists worked on it

    I really wanted to see this film when it came out last year! Unfortunately I missed it. How does it differ from a straight-up biographical film about an artist? Do you think that because you learn about Van Gogh through the eyes of others that you see a different side of him?

    What an enticing description, this sounds like such a different style to the way films are usually made - I’d love to see it! I’ll probably try to stream it sometime but it sounds like a film that will have even more impact on the big screen. Great that you got a chance to see it as part of a film festival. Did the man find out what he wanted to know about Van Gogh’s death?
