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

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."
