#81: Van Gogh (Maurice Pialat, 1991)

Because it's about a man hiding behind his art.

Dang it. I skipped Peter Watkins' rare and reputedly-similar Edvard Munch today at the rep house because I needed to catch up on my work obligations. I've had cineaste's remorse all day, and this is like another sign from the universe that I should have given over the three hours!

I'm glad, too, for more encouragement into the Pialat oeuvre. I saw Under the Sun of Satan for the first time last spring, and it'll be one of the debuts on my Top 100 when I re-tally it this winter. Great film!
