Plot Summary

Vibrant orange sunflowers. Rippling yelow grain. Trees bursting with white bloom. "The pictures come to me as in a dream," Vincent Van Gogh said. A dream that too often turned to life-shattering nightmare. Winner of Golden Globe and New York Film Critics Best Actor Awards, Kirk Douglas gives a fierce portrayal as the artist torn between the joyous inspiration of his genius and the dark desperation of his tormented mind. The obsessed Van Gogh painted the way other men breathe, driving away family and friends, including artist Paul Gauguin (1956 Best Supporting Actor Academy Award winner Anthony Quinn). Directed by Vincente Minnelli and saturated with the hues of Van Gogh's sea, field and sky, Lust for Life captures the ecstasy of art. And the agony of one man's life.

Customer Reviews

"You Paint to Fast!! You LOOK Too Fast!!"

Great movie that is biographical AND entertaining. Nice performances by Douglas and Quinn, and a lot of insights into the paintings of Impressionists and Post Impressionists. Definitely see it, if not own it!

Great Performance and Cinematography

Any one with an interest in modern art will enjoy this version of Vincent van Gogh's life story. The scenery and dialog work together to make it seem like you're back in the time and places where van Gogh and Gauguin lived. Kirk Douglas is very good, even if he goes over the top in places. Vincent van Gogh himself must have been a bit OTT himself, eh?
