Van Gogh. Top member of the Bipolar Club. You see this?
Yes, it's beautiful!
You know why?
Because it's the painting of the sky he saw from his sanitarium window when he was manic.
Yeah. You don't believe me, go look it up.
I believe you.
Well, when you go out tonight, and you look at the sky and you see how dull it is, think about if you would've medicated Van Gogh!

Touched With Fire, definitely not an easy watch at times, tells the story of two young poets falling in love while battling bipolar disorder.
The cinematography can only be described as breathtaking, and the same could be said about the soundtrack. This film was truly a joy for the eyes and the ears. Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby were fantastic as the two patients, poets, lovers. The only thing that felt a bit off was the story - it felt slightly confusing at times, maybe moving a little fast?
It might have felt like something was missing from the story, but the honesty and realness made up for it. Definitely worth the watch - while being a visual treat, Touched With Fire also opened my eyes to completely new aspects of mental illness.
