The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.
One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
During a self-imposed exile in Arles and Auvers-Sur-Oise, France, Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh develops his unique, colorful style of painting. While grappling with religion, mental illness and a tumultuous friendship with French artist Paul Gauguin, van Gogh begins to focus on his relationship with eternity rather than the pain his art causes him in the present..
Although offering an interesting perspective of seeing life from through Van Gogh's eyes, this film suffers from slow pacing and a disjointed narrative that never really gains any momentum. The acting was solid from Willem Dafoe in the lead role as well as from the supporting cast, but I don't see this film appealing to most casual film audiences. If you are however, interested in the story of this beloved artist, I'd recommend 2017's innovative (and much better) Loving Vincent.
