At Eternity's Gate
Whole star Whole star Whole star Whole star
At Eternity's Gate Few artists have held a greater fascination for dramatists than Vincent Van Gogh. At this late date, there would seem to be little new to dramatize -- or stylize -- about a man so often scrutinized on screen. But Julien Schnabel's "At Eternity's Gate...... Read the full review

Comin' for ya!

Brushstroke of genius
Few artists have held a greater fascination for dramatists than Vincent Van Gogh. He's been played on film by Kirk Douglas, John Hurt, Tim Roth and Martin Scorsese, and he's palled around with the Doctor on "Doctor Who."

It wasn't that Jenkins won an Oscar for co-writing Best Picture "Moonlight" -- that hadn't happened yet. The Baldwin estate looked at Jenkins' work to date and, most importantly, his screenplay for "Beale Street," which richly cultivates a novelistic tone and preserves Baldwin's voice in narration and dialogue. Thursday, 5:27 PM
