    Chicago Tribune Dave Kehr

    Vincent & Theo is a by-the-numbers art biography that barely succeeds in recapping the best-known events in the life of its subject, Vincent van Gogh. There is something almost chilling in the degree of the director's evident disengagement from his material and the complete lack of craft with which he has filmed it.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    Vincent & Theo looks and feels like a half-baked PBS drama, and at two hours and 20 minutes the movie is hopelessly plodding. Still, see it for Roth, whose warts-and-all portrait of Van Gogh is an offbeat triumph.

    The New York Times Janet Maslin

    The enjoyment in Vincent and Theo comes more from the director's attention to art history than from his ability to interpret it anew.

    Newsweek

    Altman has a sorcerer's ability to crack open scenes and invite us in to wander through them, and he keeps Vincent & Theo bristling with emotions and ideas.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Altman's approach in Vincent & Theo is a very immediate, intimate one. He would rather show us things happening than provide themes and explanations. He is most concerned with the relationship that made the art possible.

    Variety

    One of Robert Altman’s most cinematically conventional films as well as one of his most deeply personal.
