Amadeus vs. At Eternity's Gate



Mozart vs. Van Gogh. Great artists, tragic premature ends. Van Gogh's story might spark my interest just a little more. At Eternity's Gate kinda captures that sense of awe present in the real story while also being very meditative and artistic. Willem Dafoe is awesome as Vincent. Amadeus, on the other hand, is a cinematic masterpiece in every way. It's 3 hours long, yet it never drops the ball. Also, F. Murray Abraham is incredible as Signore Salieri and music is much more my kind of thing.
