At Eternity's Gate is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world's most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh's letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented.


"The lovely new biopic by Julian Schnabel offers a vision of Van Gogh's final days that is at once bold, blissful and deeply sad." - Andrew Lapin, NPR


"There have been many films about Vincent Van Gough, but none as extraordinary as Julian Schnabel's version, starring Willem Dafoe in a monumental, career-best performance that lets us feel we're living Van Gough's life and not just watching it." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone


"This man, much like the real one, is acutely aware of his fragilities. Yet by adamantly focusing above all else on van Gogh's work - and its transporting ecstasies - Schnabel has made not just an exquisite film but an argument for art." - Manohla Dargis, New York Times
