    ★★★★

    Complex film. It was well done and strikingly beautiful ... yet also a bit awkward. The animation by painting worked better in some instances than in others. As a fan of Van Gogh, I enjoyed the story and liked seeing his style of art of brought to life. But the animation had enough bad moments to take you out of the film.

    This is not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination ... and yet it was a ton of fun! It knows what it is and gives you pretty much what you expect.

    What a terrible movie. I've never had a harder time staying awake during a film. I will never, ever understand the love affair with Tarantino. I just don't get his films or why people fall all over themselves to praise him. If this hadn't been so incredibly dreadful I might have some interest in seeing his new films, but this was two hours of my life I will never get back.

    I was pleasantly surprised. I had read a number of reviews that were not favorable but went with a friend who is obsessed with the Broadway show. While this certainly isn't an Oscar winner, I don't feel it was as bad as the reviews stated.

    I do think Eastwood was an odd choice for director. Instead of a movie musical it was a movie with some musical numbers in it.
