i’m one of the kickstarter backers of this movie. i can’t wait to see the finished product… it’s taken a long time, but they have been really pretty good about updates and behind-the-scenes info. it looks so good so far.

As they say, “one does not posses genius, one is possessed by genius.”

(“Moon” is a great movie, evidence that the best sci-fi isn’t about laser gun battles and weird looking aliens, but instead uses a pallet of scientific possibility to explore deeper ideas.)

I’m excited to see this movie, despite my reluctance to embrace Van Gogh and my convinced skepticism that he committed suicide.

It’s about time that we get a movie! I was a big fan of the series.

There’s a great Doctor Who episode (revamp) titled “Vincent & the Doctor” which always makes me tear up at the end.

That episode is soul crushing. The first time i saw it i was utterly destroyed and sobbed, thinking about it is still a sad thing to reflect on.

Also Loving Vincent has somehow escaped my radar until now, definitely keeping an eye out for this. Looks really great

I LOVE Ron Perlman. I remember that show as a kid.

Yes. In college I looked like him until I grew facial hair.

Also Don McLean was loving Van Gogh before it was cool.

“…perhaps they’ll listen now.”

Yeah, this:

I don’t watch Dr. Who but this was neat.

Dark thought: maybe after that scene they took him back to his time where he realized he recognized every painting on display and killed himself in despair…

Sorry.

How is that determined? Is there some Van Gogh popularity index that’s computed annually?

Did you not get the memo? Here it is:

(actually the number of visitors, in millions, to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam).

[I’ve never been particularly interested in Van Gogh, but was blown away when I visited the museum, epecially by ‘[The Potato Eaters](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Potato_Eaters)’]
