      Movie Info

      During his lifetime, Vincent Van Gogh (Tim Roth) has no greater champion of his work than his devoted brother, Theo (Paul Rhys). As an art gallery owner, Theo pushes for the recognition that Van Gogh's masterpieces deserve, only to meet with abject failure. While Van Gogh struggles with obscurity and mental illness, Theo faces serious financial difficulties due to poor sales. Eventually, both the Van Gogh brothers begin falling apart over the reality of their unrealized dreams.

        Vincent and Theo features the quirky, voyeuristic style of Altman and has Roth in an intense but human role. I am only vaguely familiar with the story of Van Gogh; I cannot tell whether I would find the plot better or worse if I did know the story. As it is, I find the plot neutral but rate the film up a bit based on the actor / director pairing. Recommended to fans of Altman and Roth.

        Despite an awful score and how the narrative seems sometimes as fragmented as the characters' psyches, this biopic impresses us with a beautiful cinematography and art direction, as if seen from Van Gogh's own eyes, and it has Tim Roth and Paul Rhys in fantastic performances.

        While I sentimentally love the Doctor Who version of Vincent Van Gogh, this is the definitive dramatic take of an artist on the brink of madness with few pennies to his name.

        Altmans Vincent & Theo really portrayed the life of poverty and the life of upper class. Down to the teeth of the characters it really transitioned between the two. Tim Roth was believable as the famous painter Vincent Van Gogh and the character of his brother Theo was also well portrayed. The problem was it was the SLOWEST movie I've seen. This 2 hour and 20 minute feature made you feel like you're being dragged through it at the 1 hour mark. If you'd like to watch, do not do it in one viewing session. It got extremely boring and stayed that way for a long period of time.
