Love the theatrical feel of this movie
10 April 2014 | by (hong kong) – See all my reviews

A marvelous movie of my favorite painter by my latest favorite actor.

Love the theatrical feel of this movie, having the actors facing the camera - literally the audience - reading their lines - the letters the conversations - they had with/regards Van Gogh.

Finally I see the struggle of Van Gogh and the development of his arts. Wish I watched this movie before visiting the Van Gogh Museum many years ago. Or, I'll just go again. :)

Cumberbatch once again does a great job. As I specially watch this movie just to see him, he acts so well that he really draws me back to Van Gogh and forget about Cumberbatch is acting. In many movies Cumberbatch involved, he has this subtleness that he can act in any character that makes me see only the character on screen but not him. So after the movie you'll remember the character, touched by the character, but not the actor - only be amazed that he actor does a great job. Super love him!!! Just wish that his Hollywood career won't drown him in vanity so that he can continue produce great work of acting the character out, but not presenting himself on screen - although I do love to know more about him off screen. (wish someone in his circle could see this and tell him about it)
