Lust for Life (1956) Kirk Douglas gives an Oscar-nominated performance in Vincente Minelli's adaptation of Irving Stone's torrid life of Vincent van Gogh. It perpetuates the romantic myth of the tortured artist but is an enjoyable, if not entirely accurate, portrait of a great artist. Made in 1956, some will find it dated while others will enjoy it as a classic.
Surviving Picasso Anthony Hopkins, Natashcha McElhone, Julianne Moore
The story of Francoise Gilot, the only lover of Pablo Picasso who was strong enough to withstand his ferocious cruelty and move on with her life.
