Loving Vincent (Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman, 2017)

☼☼☼☼☼☼☼☼(☼) out of 10☼
A letter delivery by one of Vincent van Gogh's models (Armand Roulin portrayed by Douglas Booth) turns into a detective-like investigation of the tortured artist's final days at Auvers-sur-Oise, with all the events in a (bit corny) story vividly, breathtakingly represented in thousands of oil paintings that pay a loving, inspired homage to the prominent Post-Impressionist's instantly recognizable style (and prolific opus), boldly pushing the boundaries of the animated film medium (especially the rotoscoping technique) in varied brushstrokes and in a similar fashion as Aleksandr Petrov and Irina Evteeva.
