**Van Gogh - Brush with Genius** features an art historian who gains access to the letters of tortured artist, Vincent Van Gogh. Written to his brother Theo, Vincent details the passion for the paint brush and his interpretation of reality.
Paintings normally seen in a crowded art museum are given the full blown IMAX magnification. For art historian, this feature is worth the price of admission, yet the narrative is a bit clunky and heavy handed. Two unintentional laughs occur when the narrator (as Vincent Van Gogh) describes his own death and the slicing of his ear.
