Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews
    • Excerpt: While the film is a little too artsy for my tastes, it has two excellent performances and some well-crafted visuals to make it worth seeing.
  • [New] | Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
    • Excerpt: Is there art in madness? Is there madness in art? “At Eternity’s Gate” explores the last two years of post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh’s life asking the audience to suffer with its protagonist and question the reality of artistic expression.
  • Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe
    • Excerpt: This is very much an artist lovingly commemorating an artist he holds dear [and in that regard] quite possibly more a film about Schnabel himself than Van Gogh.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Many films have looked at the broader aspects of Vincent van Gogh’s life and beyond, but At Eternity’s Gate examines what it would be like to be in the head of this tortured artist.
  • Frank Ochieng @ Screen Anarchy
    • Excerpt: …Marvelously explored and poetically masterful. Schnabel aptly captures the contained creativity that is trapped in the weary eyes of the intuitive Dafoe’s well-traveled van Gogh. Consequently, At Eternity’s Gate has a quiet, spell-binding appeal.
  • Scott Phillips @ The Movie Isle
  • Jonathan Richards @ Pasatiempo
    • Excerpt: There’s plenty to annoy you in this latest addition to the well-stocked van Gogh cinema shelf, but also plenty to admire, including Dafoe’s performance, which was nominated for Best Actor.
  • Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: Because of Willem Dafoe’s revelatory performance and Benoit Delhomme’s excellent cinematography, we seem to see things through Vincent Van Gogh’s eyes in this fine film about the famous painter.
