At Eternity's Gate

  • Directed by: Julian Schnabel
  • Cast: Willem Dafoe, Rupert Friend, Oscar Isaac

Vincent Van Gogh (Dafoe) discovers the landscape of Arles and meets the locals. Dafoe gives a supremely committed performance, by turns touchingly sweet, achingly vulnerable and a bit scary, and Delhomme’s cinematography is ravishing; possibly one of the definitive films about this troubled genius.

The Gleaners And I (Les Glaneurs et la Glaneuse)

The Gleaners And I (Les Glaneurs et la Glaneuse)
  • 2001
  • France
  • 1h 30min
  • U
  • Directed by: Agnes Varda

Les Glaneurs is a peculiar film. On the one hand it's a jolly insight into the lives of an unknown social group in Europe, on the other it's a profoundly depressing document of a medieval method of survival that ought not to exist in 21st century Europe. The titular gleaners are those people who subsist on the leftovers of society. Varda joins her subjects on the glean around France, and paints an affectionate picture of the ingenious methods used to overcome hardship. A cheerful, often witty portrait of an unfortunately common practice.
