Loving Vincent

My eyes have just been treated to the wonderful experience of seeing Loving Vincent on the cinema screen and I feel compelled to urge you all out there to do the same for yours. Using the same idea as Richard Linklater’s rotoscope animation, Loving Vincent takes live-action film and turns it into a 95-minute van Gogh painting come to life by hand-painting it in his glorious colours and brushstrokes.

The plot is mildly interesting – how and why exactly did he die? – but the visual effect is gorgeously stunning (even the monochrome flashbacks). I know it’s been out for a couple of weeks already but, if you can, see it.
