Reviews:
"[A]n unbridled portrait of the painful but productive final years in the life of Vincent van Gogh, a role inhabited with the acrid lucidity of madness by Willem Dafoe." - 09/03/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"AT ETERNITY'S GATE, Julian Schnabel’s fluky and transporting drama about van Gogh’s tumultuous, fervid, and artistically possessed last days, is a movie that channels the light, the evanescent glow of van Gogh’s painting and being, like lightning in a bottle." - 09/03/2018 Variety


3 stars out of 4 -- "Rarely has a film been more of a singular showcase for a performer. Schnabel’s camera is often moving and often in close-up, as if the filmmaker is trying to find the magic in Dafoe’s performance in the same way that Van Gogh tried to find the magic in a landscape he was painting." - 11/16/2018 RogerEbert.com


"[A] vivid, intensely affecting portrait of Vincent van Gogh toward the end of his life....Schnabel is interested in this difficult, mercurial man and attentive to his hardships." - 11/15/2018 New York Times


"It’s about what it feels like to be an artist, to be overwhelmed and obsessed with the unavoidable need to bring art into the world....A tribute from one painter to another..." - 11/14/2018 Los Angeles Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "AT ETERNITY'S GATE is a ravishment of the senses, with cinematographer Benoît Delhomme -- a master of the handheld camera -- capturing the gorgeous play of sunlight on flowers, wheat fields and anything that else that seized Van Gogh’s attention." - 11/14/2018 Rolling Stone
