MONDAY NIGHT FILM SERIES:

AT ETERNITY’S GATE

January 14, 2019 – 7:30pm at Tilley Hall, UNB Campus

AT ETERNITY’S GATE

Julian Schnabel
Switzerland/ UK / France / USA
French/English with English subtitles
110 minutes
Principal Cast: Willem Dafoe, Rupert Friend, Oscar Isaac, Mads Mikkelsen

Julian Schnabel’s ravishingly tactile and luminous new film takes a fresh look at the last days of Vincent van Gogh, and in the process revivifies our sense of the artist as a living, feeling human being.

Schnabel; his co-writers Jean-Claude Carrière and Louise Kugelberg, also the film’s editor; and cinematographer Benoît Delhomme strip everything down to essentials, fusing the sensual, the emotional, and the spiritual. And the pulsing heart of At Eternity’s Gate is Willem Dafoe’s shattering performance: his Vincent is at once lucid, mad, brilliant, helpless, defeated, and, finally, triumphant. With Oscar Isaac as Gauguin, Rupert Friend as Theo, Mathieu Amalric as Dr. Gachet, Emmanuelle Seigner as Madame Ginoux, and Mads Mikkelsen as The Priest.

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
