I saw a film many years ago about him but can't remember what it was called. I thought he had shot himself and although he didnt die straight away I think he did shortly afterwards

You really have to listen to the words of this movie so you can understand its meaning. Some people might not like it because it's more of a "talking movie", but if you're a deep person and you like Vincent, and you're an artist, you can appreciate this.

Dafoe is a great actor. And Van Gogh was brilliant, too bad he wasn't more recognized during his life
