Willem Dafoe's magnificent performance captures every bit of the artist's complexity in Julian Schnabel's At Eternity's Gate.Caryn James, BBC.com
At Eternity's Gate is not the first film to dramatize the final years in the life of Vincent Van Gogh, and it won't be the last. But this one tries to put us inside the artist's head, showing us his struggle to understand the world...Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto
Dafoe's elegiac quality hints at why the artist was ahead of his time: because he saw more than anyone else could. It's a towering performance in a movie that casts a magnetic spell.Chris Hewitt, Minneapolis Star Tribune
