"Dafoe's elegiac quality hints at why the artist was ahead of his time: because he saw more than anyone else could. It's a towering performance in a movie that casts a magnetic spell." – Chris Hewitt, Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Memorable moments come from its series of penetrating philosophical conversations... Dafoe expertly plays the keenness of Van Gogh's intellect and creativity against his searing drive, his raw emotions, and the haunting that was his depression." – Peter Canvese, Groucho Reviews

"Dafoe adds another masterful performance to his resume; his work here is as deep and as piercing as his performance in "The Last Temptation of Christ" more than 30 years ago." – Adam Graham, Detroit News

"There have been many films about Vincent Van Gough, but none as extraordinary as Julian Schnabel's version, starring Willem Dafoe in a monumental, career-best performance that lets us feel we're living Van Gough's life and not just watching it." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Academy Award® Nominee Julian Schnabel's At Eternity's Gate is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite scepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world's most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh's (Academy Award® Nominee Willem Dafoe) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented.
