    I dream my painting and I paint my dream.

    Remarkable that it was 2017 when the first fully-painted film was released but Loving Vincent shows a great depth of insight into Van Gogh's last days with huge clarity of emotion and beautiful dedication to his artwork.

    The voice work is impressive despite a lack of narrative exhilaration that could cause some to be bored of Douglas Booth's long journey.
