Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Visually, it's spectacular. Conceptually, it's jaw-dropping to simply considering the effort that went into this. The story, however, doesn't always hold its own.
Fresh: The roiling landscape scenes betray the redundance of animating images that already sizzle with energy, but the portraiture works beautifully, especially because the actors who supply the characters' voices and visages are first-rate.
Rotten: It relies on forced exposition to push the story forward and often recalls bad dinner theater, and is certainly the least interesting way to tell van Gogh's tale.
Fresh: The gorgeous animation alone makes "Loving Vincent" worth the price of admission. And the narrative, if a bit paint-by-numbers, is interesting enough.
I am not one to purchase movies but I am anxiously waiting for this to become available
This movie is full of beautiful art. While watching it, I thought often of my desire to actually purchase the video, which I did. No other movie has ever affected me in this manner.
When can I expect the download?
