The last two years (1888-1890) in the life of Vincent van Gogh are presented, those years spent largely in southern France, most specifically Arles. He is driven by his art and what his art means to him, as opposed to the primary goal of making money, which he does not in not selling any of his paintings and thus being supported financially and emotionally by his brother, Theo van Gogh. As opposed to his friend and fellow artist Paul Gauguin who has a modicum of success, Van Gogh is seen as less contemplative about his work due in large part to the speed at which he paints and what is seen as the haphazard style of thick strokes of paint on the canvas, but he is arguably more contemplative regardless of how prolific he is. That overall contemplative nature manifests itself more as madness, seeming or real, as demonstrated by an infamous act concerning his left ear.

I remember reading that this film was "one of the best biopics ever made." I agree completely. The acting is superb. The directing is superb. The photography is stunning. The acting is very well done. The story is told in such a way that makes you feel like you are actually there with the characters. There is no major flaws in this film. It is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. The story is told in a way that really makes you feel what the characters are feeling. You feel their pain. You feel the love and the hope they have for each other. The actors are very believable in their roles. The movie is about the love that exists between two people in a very dark time in their lives. I truly recommend this movie to everyone who wants to feel something great.

I have read the reviews and was very disappointed. I found that most of the reviewers never saw the film. The cast was very well chosen. Both Jim Carrey and Ben Chaplin are great actors. The film is extremely well directed. The script is witty and compelling. The performances are above par. The story is riveting. The music is fantastic. The directing and editing are superb. The movie is also very timely in today's world. It also demonstrates that movies don't have to be old fashioned or large budgets to be great. I do not know who they will choose to replace Jim Carrey as the next Richard Chamberlain. I do know that one of my friends, a huge Carrey fan, is now looking for a way to express his love for him in a film. I am sure he will be thrilled with what he sees. I am also excited to see a contemporary remake of the picture. The first film in this series should be called "How to do a Medieval Comedy."

The American film in 2003 was not a major step forward in terms of entertainment, but it was a massive step forward in terms of communication between people. In this film, we see the results of that effort. It was difficult to watch these men, with nothing to lose, who risked their lives in order to save an American woman. We see the aftermath of this mission, as the men prepare for their final mission, the attempt to save the American woman. We see that to believe in God is to give up hope. These men were willing to die for their love of America, and for the survival of their beloved women. Their deaths are no more than a sacrifice for the love of God. Their deaths are the symbol of the end of a great culture. They were willing to risk their lives for something they knew was impossible. They were willing to take that risk for the love of God. Their deaths were not necessary to the effort to save the American woman. They were able to save her, but the risk was in vain. They paid for the sacrifice of their love for their country. But the most important thing that we learn from this film is that love of country is greater than any other country. They did not need a saving mission. They were willing to die, to save their love of country. We must live for our country. We must not allow any other country to have our love of country.

This film is a great movie, a true work of art and I could watch it over and over again. It is hard to find a film that talks about the human condition and the soul without being preachy. This film has both. The first time I saw it I was still a bit jaded about being around men, but I thought it was a great movie that kept me focused on my role as a woman. I wanted to see it again, but that's the only reason I'm giving it a ten. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about the history of the human race.

I first read the novel as a kid. The movie is well done, but I also like the book. I was on the edge of my seat. The movie is good, but the book is better. The movie isn't as realistic as the book, but it is a good movie. If you like this movie, read the book. The book is so much better than the movie. I give the movie a 10/10.

This is my second book I have seen and this is definitely one of the best. It's definitely not a book I can go back to and read again but I don't need to. This is the first of three book series I am a part of and I really love all three. The first book was just like this movie and I thought it was just as good as the movie. I do believe the movie is a good movie but I don't think the book was as good. I love the book and the movie. I love the movie and the book.

I am so glad to have finally seen this movie!I remember watching it when I was a kid and the pictures from the first two movies just stuck with me.I read the book first and then was hooked.The movie was awesome! The action was great and there was more emotion than the first two movies. The story is different and there are different characters but I feel they are still there.The acting was amazing and James Garner was amazing. I am hoping for a sequel. I feel like the time is right.I would love to see how the story would develop. The guys that played Earl and Tommy have such a unique presence. I would love to see this movie one day!

A lot of reviewers hated the movie and I can see why. The book is much more complex and dramatic than this film version. As a side note, there are many similarities to The Third Man. Both involve troubled young men who have to take risks and who, on their journeys, encounter a wide array of people and events. They are both action movies with much more depth than a lot of the action movies that are out today. The difference is, The Third Man has an intelligent story and The Eternity's Gate is just a simple action movie. This is a film that I thought deserved a better rating. I give it a 9/10 because it has an intelligent story and it had me in tears more than once.

Wow. The second "Into The Wild" is just so amazing. There's no way around it: "Into The Wild" is the greatest movie of all time. It's a gem. And, not only is the movie stunning in it's cinematography, it's a movie of miracles. It truly is a masterclass in movie making. Michael Cimino is a genius. The acting is first rate. The writing is first rate. The story line is first rate. The direction is first rate. The production design is first rate. And the music is first rate. And the cast is first rate. The movie should have won Oscars for everything. In fact, the movie should have been nominated for Oscars. The movie is a masterpiece. It's the greatest movie ever. "Into The Wild" is a must see. I guarantee it. I've seen it and it's one of the greatest movies of all time. So go to the video store and buy it. Buy it now. Buy it now! You will not regret it.

It's hard to describe the sense of hopelessness and "being stuck" I felt when I finally got around to watching this film. For all of its flaws, I was able to relate to the characters and feel the physical, emotional and mental anguish they were going through. It is a movie that will likely stay with me for a long time. The acting is excellent and the cinematography, effects, story and cinematography are really top notch. But this is not about the movie, this is about the people who are involved in the making of the movie. The writing, the director, the cinematography and editing. My goodness what an incredible effort! In my opinion, this is the best film I have seen in the last 10 years. I can't wait to see it again and again and again. This film will truly move you and in the end you will understand that nothing is what it seems. A film to be cherished, one to be cherished and saved. I am also very pleased to see that some of the actors were recognized at the Oscars. I'm not sure what happened to Danny Glover who played Macduff, but I'm pretty sure that everyone involved with the film was amazing. You will be happy that this movie is out there, a very rare thing, and it's going to get better with time. It will definitely be a classic and a classic that I can be proud to call my own.

A film is an artistic expression and masterpiece of art. It is what we as human beings understand the difference between a great film and a great movie. This is what was good in this film. Everything was good. It's hard to find great movies anymore. It's hard to find a perfect movie. In the last decade or so, it is more common to find a movie that has some flaws or they are just mediocre. It's a rarity for a movie to make the screen that is flawless and perfection in its words. The idea of an elderly man who suffers from dementia and is the main character in this film is brilliant. The actors did their best. It is a slow film, but it is done in a manner that is quite creative. It does not do what we expect a slow film to do. It does not drag on. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. I don't know why they decided to end the film that way. I think that is a little cliche and predictable. It is not what I expected. It is a must watch film for everyone. 10/10

This is by far the best movie I have ever seen. The acting is flawless, the music is excellent, the sets are haunting, the dialogue is downright haunting. The portrayal of one of the great geniuses of the 20th century is both courageous and truthful. There are many things to love in this film, and I think most people will find something they can relate to. This is truly a great story and one of the greatest movies I have ever seen.

One of the best movies I've ever seen. The sets, the story, the acting, and the music were all perfect. The way that it started off with a bunch of very sick people and then switched to a hospital with a bunch of healthy people, and then to a farm and then to a bus and then to a lake and then to a building and then to a fire. How could any human be so inhumane as to put anyone else's life in jeopardy like that? A perfect film.

This is an excellent movie and one that I recommend to anyone who wants to see an intelligent movie about the life of William Gladstone and how he became one of the most important people in British history. I thought this movie was wonderful. I can't say that I'm one of the few people who know about William Gladstone but this movie gives a fairly good insight into his life and how he came to be the man that he is today. I think the only people who would not be interested in seeing this movie are those who have never heard of William Gladstone. This is definitely a movie worth seeing. The only problem I had with the movie was that there were a few things that didn't make sense to me and made it more confusing. If you don't understand the movie or think that the scenes don't make any sense, don't go and see it. However, if you do understand the movie, then I think that this is a movie you should see. I think that this movie is very important and should be seen by everyone. This movie will show you what it was like to be one of the greatest British politicians in history. It will also show you the time that the country was at when William Gladstone was president. This movie will tell you that there is only one man who was a great British politician, and that man was William Gladstone. The movie does a good job of showing the period in which Gladstone became president, and the fight that he had to fight for what he believed in. It shows the rise and fall of Gladstone from his time as a Prime Minister to his later days in office. It will also show the "drama" that came with Gladstone's decision to withdraw the Scottish Parliament from the British Empire. It also shows the struggles that Gladstone had with the press and people, the reason he became president, and how he was elected and then became president.

I thought this movie was a wonderful portrayal of the events of the war. I know there is some drama in the movie, but I didn't see it as one of those "Drama on a wheel of fate" movies. This movie was about not just men who served in World War II, but the Japanese who fought in the war. It was about the strength and the courage and the nobility of the Japanese soldiers. It was about the courage of men who risked their lives in order to save another man's life. And it was about the sacrifice of people who did not have the luxury of time to honor the death of another human being. This movie did an excellent job at depicting these people in a realistic way. I recommend this movie to all who have seen it, to anyone who has a passion for the war or who has ever had a family member who was a member of the armed forces. It was not just a movie for people who had a love of the war, but it was a movie for people who had a love of history.

The book "The Thousand Names" by Jack Finney (another great writer of the 50's) is a far better book to illustrate this film. Although the film is very good in its own right, it doesn't compare to the book. Some great scenes were missing from the film and other great scenes were added, the cinematography was also impressive, but the book had the advantage of having those great scenes. It is the perfect film to complement the book.

I love this film! It is a wonderful piece of art. The cast was superb and the pacing was perfect. The soundtrack was also very good. I loved the fact that it was a true story, it kept me awake all night. I thought that many of the actors portrayed characters very accurately, and I thought that Johnny Depp was great as the sheriff. In the book, it was much more romantic and the love story was a lot more romantic. If you like great films, you will love this one. I have recommended it to all my friends. I give it a 10 out of 10.

I saw this movie after seeing the scene in the movie where Cruise talks to his wife at the end. She is in tears after seeing his young daughter. It is a powerful scene. I do not understand why the critics and the fans can not see this movie for what it is. I saw this movie with my friend who loves to read movies and liked it. It is a beautiful movie and has amazing actors. My best comment is how this movie is about love. If you have never been in love before, you will be in love with this movie. This movie is about what love is and what it means. You are going to be crying for it. This movie is about true love and love in general. I loved the movie and I think that it is the best movie I have ever seen. I think that it is the best movie of the year.

For those of us who have lost loved ones in the last 10 years, the music in this movie made it a memorable experience. The movie is not a romantic drama, it's a memorial to those we lost. With all of this in mind, I have to disagree with another reviewer who said that the movie was boring. In fact, the music and cinematography were very creative, in the sense that it was extremely well-done. It's also difficult to sing while standing in front of a screen, and the acting was all-star quality. I also enjoyed the fact that the movie didn't take itself too seriously, and it was a great way to bring home the message of the movie.

Greetings again from the darkness. THIS is the greatest documentary I've ever seen. I saw this film at the local film festival, and I left feeling uplifted. I left with the same sense of accomplishment that I felt when I first saw this film. This is the real deal. Not a film to watch once. But it IS an experience. Every single shot is shot on a great scale, capturing the mood of the place, the people, and the seasons. If you don't like this film, go out and find some other movie about the 1800's. This is an amazing film.
