The last thing I wanted to do tonight was see another movie about artist Vincent Van Gogh. We ventured out anyway to our favorite movie house, the Coral Gables Art Cinema, because they secured a Skype interview with the movie’s director. Julian Schnabel called into the theater from Sweden after we viewed At Eternity’s Gate.
It was so interesting to listen to artist Schnabel talk about artist Van Gogh. Schnabel gave his perspective on how an artist views his or her work. You are no longer just looking at a pretty picture . You are looking at how an artist views the world. The camera work was amazing too. Schnabel shot scenes from angles you are not used to seeing. The portrayal of Van Gogh by Willem Dafoe was surreal. Hollywood feels this is Defoe’s best role yet. Let’s see what happens during the movie awards.
A surprise dinner was waiting for all moviegoers.
