iTunes Review: Loving Vincent

January 23, 2018

By John Corrado

The first ever fully hand painted feature film, Loving Vincent takes place a year after the suicide of Vincent Van Gogh (Robert Gulaczyk), and follows a postman’s son (Douglas Booth) who is tasked with delivering a lost letter that the Dutch artist had written to his brother, and ends up becoming intrigued by the mysterious elements of his life and death.  It’s now available on iTunes, as well as a variety of other VOD platforms.

Made up of a whopping 65,000 oil paintings all done by hand, with twelve per second to give it the illusion of motion, Loving Vincent is easily one of the most ambitious animated films in recent memory, offering a spectacular feast for the eyes.  The film received a much deserved Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature just this morning, and it’s well worth seeking out.  You can read my full review of the film right here.

The iTunes extras include the two featurettes The Making of Loving Vincent and Walking Through Vincent’s Neighbourhood, which give us a glimpse into the unique process behind making the film, as well as an interview with Douglas Booth.

Loving Vincent is a Mongrel Media release.  It’s 95 minutes and rated 14A.
