Host Leonard Nimoy took a turn writing this informative and poignant look at troubled but gifted Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh, who produced over 1800 works of art, yet did not profit by it in his lifetime. Instead, poor Vincent was beset by emotional and health problems that may have been linked to Epilespy, a neurological disease that went undiagnosed at that time, though now is treated with medicine. Vincent apparently heard sinister voices in his head, that led him to sever part of his ear, a most chilling sequence. He later died from a self-inflicted gunshot, while his devoted brother Theo later succumbed with grief months later. Mr. Nimoy is presented on location investigating these two men, as he was involved with a one-man show "Vincent", and his sincerity and passion for the material is most effective.
