‘Loving Vincent’

65,000 oil paintings! That’s how many are in “Loving Vincent” on the life of Vincent van Gogh. Directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, the film is the first fully-painted feature. It was first shot in live action with actors (including Saoirse Ronan and Chris O’Dowd), and then painted over frame by frame by 125 artists. “Loving Vincent” is extremely popular and keeps selling out. There’s another chance to see it; Speed Cinema has added a third round of showings with tickets in December. And just like all the holiday ads say — don’t wait until the last minute, buy now.
