This revealing documentary by Paul Cox takes you on a shattering journey through the life of a tortured genius — van Gogh — who became one of the most influential artists of modern history. Although he created 1,800 works during his decade-long career, van Gogh sold only one painting in his lifetime. The story of his turbulent, painful life is told through letters written to his brother Theo, which are eloquently read by John Hurt.
