The film's vision of van Gogh is honest and incisive and, at the same time, unabashedly romantic. You might call it a portrait of the artist as the world's first flower child.

Time Out

An incomplete exercise that lacks crucial emotional brushstrokes despite a rich palette and a piano-heavy score, At Eternity's Gate still offers the thrill of being inside an artistic process, adoringly interpreted.

This man, much like the real one, is acutely aware of his fragilities. Yet by adamantly focusing above all else on van Gogh's work - and its transporting ecstasies - Schnabel has made not just an exquisite film but an argument for art.

A strong, valuable and intelligent performance from Dafoe, capably captured by Schnabel.

At Eternity's Gate, in its best moments, is an intoxicating experience. For the very few moments Schnabel over-reaches, there are a dozen others where he will drop your jaw in wonder. I loved this film.

Offers little excitement or fresh insight.

An unbridled portrait of the painful but productive final years in the life of Vincent van Gogh, a role inhabited with the acrid lucidity of madness by Willem Dafoe.

...stronger as the character becomes more intense and arguably unhinged.
