LOVING VINCENT : A+ 

If you have ever stood in front of a painting hoping you could step into that world, you now can. The world’s first fully oil - painted movie, Loving Vincent (Van Gogh) allows us to inhabit this world in his chosen medium. Through flashbacks, Van Gogh's contemporaries and painted subjects come to terms with their personal responsibility in his life and somewhat mysterious death.  Van Gogh’s life was passionate but distorted both emotionally and by his perception of light and color.  At the end, we can ask ourselves if would we have treated Vincent any differently. 

Jennifer Lemming
