Directed by Vincente Minnelli
USA 1956

 

Vibrant orange sunflowers. Rippling yelow grain. Trees bursting with white bloom. "The pictures come to me as in a dream," Vincent Van Gogh said. A dream that too often turned to life-shattering nightmare. Winner of 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 artist 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.

Comments:

I'm not particularly over-the-moon with this transfer - it is quite dark, dull colors and not as sharp as I would have anticipated. Looking the Warner-gift horse in the mouth I still must note this is a tight-to-the-frame-edges progressive, anamorphic DVD with a great commentary by Dr. Casper. The audio is clear and the subtitles are up to Warner's usual high standards. Perhaps I was anticipating too much from the image quality or the existing elements were in mediocre condition. I also found Minnelli's frequent long shots with characters at a fair distance from the camera to detract from my viewing enjoyment. I suppose there are reasons why but regardless - overall I was just kind of blasť with this film and presentation. Others may enjoy it much more than I did.
