Movie Haiku:Compared to Minnelliís vibrant technicolor, Altmanís version of Vincent Van Goghís tortured life is altogether more downbeat, disjointed, & violent. Theo (Vincentís art dealer brother) is a central character here, emphasizing the love/hate tension between creation & commerce. Gabriel Yaredís dissonant soundtrack carries the emotion, but is sometimes too intrusive.
