Brilliant Film
29 December 2014 | by kriahnna_18See all my reviews

All I can say about this is it's brilliant. Benedict Cumberbatch's acting is impeccable. He really brought Van Gogh's character alive. And to think that everything they said is based on actual letters and conversations from his time. I have recommended this film to my family and friends. It's a really good one. I am not an art fan, but whenever I see one of Van Gogh's paintings, I can recognize them now! Yes, I know he's famous, but I know zilch about art, which makes the film amazing, is that even non-artists like me can appreciate the art and the story behind the paintings. Oh, I just love it. I'm a Filipino, so art's not really taught to us at school unless, of course, if you're an art major at college. Brilliant. Just so brilliant and very educational for people like me.
