A poignant 99-minute examination of the creative and spiritual sides of the life and work of this artistic genius. Dutch-born Australian filmmaker Paul Cox uses Vincent's letters to his brother Theo during the last eight years of his life as the narrative. British actor John Hurt reads them eloquently. The film's imagery celebrates Van Gogh's artistry and the landscapes that inspired him. Highly recommended.
DVD Special features include A Journey With Paul Cox, directed by Gerrit Messiaen and Robert Visser, Filmmaker biography, Vincent Van Gogh Biography, interactive menus, and scene selection.
