Cinematique Presents: "Loving Vincent"

Oct 5, 2017

Monday, November 20th, to Wednesday, November 22nd, in Thalian Hall's Main Stage Theatre. Monday to Wednesday the show will start at 7pm, with an additional show on Wednesday starting at 4pm. 

On July 27, 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. Loving Vincent tells that story in a glorious and artistic way.

From the critics:

 

“One of the most lunatic labors of love to appear on movie screens this year. And in that sense, a fitting, miraculous tribute to its subject.”

Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly

“Loving Vincent may exist as a showcase for its technique, but it’s the sensitivity the film shows toward its subject that ultimately distinguishes this particular oeuvre from the countless bad copies that already litter the world’s flea markets.”

Peter Debruge, Variety
