Narrated in point of view of Van Gogh's ghost. Relatively little on the art and nothing like any interpretation or criticism. The film-maker himself make a few awkward intrusions.

I liked that Vincent was Narrating as a ghost. After death he got over his nervousness.

Nice scenery and art, of course, but it still begs the question: does the life story of an artist really need to be an IMAX film? The film barely scratches the surface of the man's life, and the notion of having Van Gogh speaking directly as if a ghost didn't work. It would have worked better with a proper narrator and a sense of focus.

It tried to emulate a conversation between Van Gogh and the viewers.
With no in-depth materials about the art works or technique employed by Van Gogh, it's bare compared to other movies about this same subject.
