Tomorrow night we’ll meet up for another tícMovie Night.  For #ThrowbackThursday, here’s a look back at the Cinecitta movie “Loving Vincent”!

27 Oct 2017. Loving Vincent was chosen for October’s movie night. A nice group gathered, all curious about what to expect from this film. There was actually quite a bit of discussion before it even started. “How in the world can they make a decent movie using paintings?” “ I wonder if it will have a cartoon feel?” “I’m sure I’ll either love it or hate it!” (more…)

TICMovie Review: Loving Vincent

by Yolonda van Riel

Loving Vincent was chosen for October’s movie night. A nice group gathered, all curious about what to expect from this film. There was actually quite a bit of discussion before it even started. “How in the world can they make a decent movie using paintings?” “ I wonder if it will have a cartoon feel?” “I’m sure I’ll either love it or hate it!”

Loving Vincent is the first entirely oil-painted animation feature film in history. One tends to get caught up in the beautiful backdrop rather than the story itself. The story revolves around the year after the death of Vincent van Gogh with the son of a postmaster trying to deliver a letter Vincent wrote to his brother, Theo. He goes on a search for Theo van Gogh and, in the process, speaks to many that knew Vincent – each with a different view on the man himself and how he died.

In general, the group enjoyed the film and there was a lively discussion afterward. Some, like myself, were totally moved by the sheer beauty of the animation while others were curious as to the different theories surrounding the death of Vincent van Gogh. If you haven’t seen Loving Vincent, it is definitely worth the price of a ticket. I, for one, will be going again … just to enjoy the beauty.

TICMovie Night review of the Jackie

Cinecitta was again the location for our movie night where we saw the film, Jackie, about First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the days following the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy. We were a small group of 4, but that had the advantage of making for a more intimate discussion of the film over drinks and snacks afterwards. We all enjoyed the movie and felt it gave a good impression of Jackie, flaws and all. Natalie Portman did an amazing job portraying her!

The film showed a televised tour she gave of the White House and we were all curious if her rather breathless way of speaking was accurate, as well as other details of the tour shown. I was so curious that when I got home, I searched on internet and found the tour on internet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7XabXENChE

Ms. Portman was spot on!
