I have watched three Art oriented films lately, one of which - Loving Vincent, I was mesmerised by. I must admit I was not particularly impressed with the other two - Tulip Fever and Rodin, despite the fact that the cast wrongly led me to believe they were (could be) films I would later remember. The critcs' views I have copied down correspond to my personal opinion.
"Great look, great cast ... but everything just sits there like a tableful of delicious ingredients waiting for a master chef who never shows up. " - Jim Lane
"A didactic film, which paradoxically lacks strength and passion." - Oscar Uriel
"The result is breathtakingly original, a reminder of both Van Gogh's unique vision and the tactile pleasure of hand-drawn animation." - Jim Lane
