The critical consensus

A triumph of painstaking technical prowess and stunning visuals over storytelling and dialogue. See it for its nuanced take on a huge cultural figure and to applaud its astounding audacity.

****(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 09/10/2017

As an exercise in style, Loving Vincent is of interest, but it doesn’t tell us that much about his work or his life.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 10/10/2017

You can’t help but admire the sheer scope of the filmmakers’ vision and the painstaking way they went about crafting their tribute to Van Gogh.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 12/10/2017

A sensationalist approach to the artist’s final days which ultimately illuminates little.

**(*)(*)(*)Matt Thrift, Little White Lies, 13/10/2017

Visually intoxicating, painstakingly crafted animation exploring the death of Vincent van Gogh.

****(*)Eddie Harrison, The List, 13/10/2017ii

A poignant portrait of a revolutionary artist.
