Film is meant to astonish. It is meant to break beyond it’s limitations and build up our emotions in glorious visuals and compelling story-line. Loving Vincent, the first animated film told in pure oil-paintings, looks to be that film.
Directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, the film looks at the life of the brilliant but troubled artists Vincent Van Gough as well as the people around him.
Holy shit. This looks incredible. The artistry. The graft. The outcome. This looks phenomenal. The work is so good that you even know the actors playing the characters such as Aiden Turner, Soirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd, and Jerome Flynn. Ugh. Just. Can we have it in our eyeballs soon.
What do you think?
Loving Vincent is out September.
