Van Gogh in the flesh. Kirk Douglas went wwaaayyy past what post did in those days. I see this on a regular basis when I need to think about what was the true fate of artists in the past.
View all Lust for Life reviews
Winner of the Golden Globe and New York Film Critics Best Actor Awards, Kirk Douglas gives a fierce portrayal as the artist torn between the joyous inspiration of his genius and the dark desperation of his tormented mind. The obsessed Van Gogh painted the way other men breathe, driving away family and friends, including Paul Gauguin (1956 Best Supporting Actor Academy Award winner Anthony Quinn). Directed by Vincente Minnelli and saturated with the hues of Van Gogh’s sea, field and sky, Lust for Life captures the ecstasy of art. And the agony of one man’s life.
