Finally saw “Vincent and the Doctor”

Loved it.  Very touching.  Regarding any tropes?  Use of Art Reenactments?  Definitely.  Now, I would like to compare this episode with the real life of Van Gogh, but I do not fully know all the details of his life.  All in all, I found it an elegant portrayal of a man whom society could not equipped to ease his suffering.  However, now that I am thinking about it, I commend them for not using the ear cutting story.

When the movie talks about Van Gogh and posthumous celebrity, I can’t help but wonder.  If he lived now, would he have a famous reputation, or just became a outsider artist?

ETA: Added a link.
