Lust for Life

1956 Rated NR 2hr 2m

Director Vincente Minnelli paints a dramatic portrait of tormented artistic genius Vincent van Gogh in this fictionalized biography. Kirk Douglas delivers a fittingly combustible performance as the mentally unstable painter, whose feverish devotion to his artistry envelops and eventually destroys him. Co-star Anthony Quinn bagged an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of van Gogh's bohemian rival Paul Gauguin.
