Beautiful Losers: Robert Altman’s Panoramic Cinema

20 Apr

Altman’s intimate biopic examines the complex relationship between Vincent van Gogh (Tim Roth) and his younger brother, Theo (Paul Rhys), a wayward Parisian businessman who becomes an art dealer and the first advocate for his brother’s work.

MEMBERSHIPS: $29 - $24 FOR 3 WEEK MINI MEMBERSHIP. ANNUAL MEMBERSHIPS AVAILABLE FROM $135. MEMBERSHIP INCLUDES CINEMA ADMISSION.
  • Opening at a Sotheby’s auction, the film explores the connections between art and commerce by contrasting the life of the two brothers. A judiciously pared down version of a 4-part miniseries commissioned by European TV, its success precipitated Altman’s return to mainstream cinema prominence in the early 1990s.
