At Eternity’s Gate
Directed by Julian Schnabel
2018 / 110 minutes

In At Eternity’s Gate, a vivid portrait of Vincent van Gogh toward the end of his life, the artist walks and walks. Often dressed in a blue shirt, he carries an easel, brushes, and paint strapped to his back. One day in 1888, he puts his battered boots on the red tile floor of his room in Arles, France. He quickly begins creating a simple painting of them; the original now hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The journey of those shoes from humble floor to museum wall tells a familiar story about van Gogh, whose painful life is part of a brand known as Vincent the Mad Genius. This film imagines a different Vincent. This Vincent is not defined by that brand but by the art with which he at once communes with the world and transcends it.

Big Eyes
Directed by Tim Burton
2014 / 106 minutes

In the late 1950s and early 60s, artist Walter Keane achieves unbelievable fame and success with portraits of saucer-eyed waifs. However, no one realizes that his wife, Margaret, is the real painter behind the brush. Although Margaret is horrified to learn that Walter is passing off her work as his own, she is too meek to protest too loudly. It isn't until the Keanes' marriage comes to an end and a lawsuit follows that the truth finally comes to light.

Exit Through the Gift Shop Directed by Banksy
2010 / 87 minutes

The infamous, shadowy British graffiti street artist Banksy has literally left his mark on cities throughout the world. He comes in contact with Thierry Guetta, a Los Angeles-based Frenchman who videotapes various underground art escapades, and later is transformed into an art phenomenon dubbed "Mr. Brainwash." Rhys Ifans narrates an overlapping documentary where the line between what is real and what might be fake blurs, as modern art and celebrity are put under the microscope.

Beauty is Embarrassing
Directed by Neil Berkeley
2012 / 93 minutes

Beauty Is Embarrassing is a funny, irreverent, joyful and inspiring documentary featuring the life and current times of one of America’s most important artists, Wayne White. He quickly found success as one of the creators of the TV show, Pee-wee’s Playhouse, which led to more work designing some of the most arresting and iconic images in pop culture. Acting as his own narrator, Wayne guides us through his life using moments from his latest creation: a hilarious, biographical one-man show.

At its core, Beauty Is Embarrassing is a reminder that we should all follow our passion. It is those creative impulses that will lead us to where we need to go.
