(Break­through Prods., Trade­mark Films | Good Deed En­ter­tain­ment) Di­rec­tors: Dorota Ko­biela, Hugh Welch­man Re­lease Date: Sept. 22, 2017 Rot­ten Toma­toes Score: 75% Syn­op­sis: An un­de­liv­er­able let­ter from Vin­cent van Gogh to his brother Theo sparks an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the painter’s tu­mul­tuous life, trau­matic fi­nal days, and the pos­si­bil­ity that he might ac­tu­ally have been mur­dered. Box Of­fice to Date: $23,000 The Word: “A long and ar­du­ous la­bor of love by Dorota Ko­biela and Hugh Welch­man, the film turns van Gogh’s work into an un­usual kind of biopic. Us­ing tens of thou­sands of oil paint­ings com­mis­sioned from scores of artists, the film­mak­ers trans­form fa­mous works of modern art into a hyp­notic and be­guil­ing car­toon.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times. Nom­i­na­tion Chances: The sheer nov­elty and beauty of its pro­duc­tion alone might get the at­ten­tion of the Academy.
