Vincent: The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh


Dir. Paul Cox (1987).
This art film is not really documentary or fiction. One of Australia’s foremost directors, Cox has made a fascinating tribute to Van Gogh, based mostly on the letters the painter wrote to his brother. Cox’s one-of-a-kind film covers the last 10 years of Van Gogh’s life, but except for a brief funeral scene at the end, the central character of the drama is never seen.
