A stunning film about the life and death of Van Gogh. Painted by hand in the style of the artist, it leads to moments when you recognize his paintings. The story, about how truth can change based on perspective, is impressive too. ArapahoeRead

"Loving Vincent" is simply stunning. The hand painted frames make you feel as if you are actually in a Vincent van Gogh painting. Even the "memories" in black and white are mesmerizing. If you like art, in any way, this movie is a definite "Must See"!

Took me a while to figure out the word "Reckon" used several times in the film:
I will tell you this. Vincent, he looked like he was all right. Then he comes here with a girl who I reckon was out of his league,
I reckon they argued over money because it was the brother that bought all Vincent's painting things.
Father used to own one once, but he didn't reckon he'd need it here in Auvers, so he sold it.

-Have you been talking to Mazery? You heard his tale of how the angle of the bullet was all wrong, that nobody shoots themselves in the stomach?
It's not my letter. It's Vincent's. It's to Theo Van Gogh.
-That's Vincent's brother, isn't it?
Yeah, Vincent left it behind. His old landlord Geno was having a clear out and found it. So he gave it to my father and father told me I have to deliver it. Like it's my business. My job is to bash metal into shape not Deliver letters.
That nutcase has cut off his ear.
-Your dad sewing it back on is he?
No, he's helping.
-Well that figures one drunk and crazy helping another.
Armand Roulin. Son of the great Joseph Roulin, giant of the South with Dostoevsky's soul.
That's what Vincent called your father. He told me all about him.
Yes, and your mother, whose lullaby could sooth even the souls of Icelandic fisherman. Come now, Armand of the Roulin clan, take a seat, be welcome.
