My Left Foot (1989)

My Left Foot is the tale of Christy Brown, an Irish painter and writer who was born with cerebral palsy and could only use his left foot’s toes to make art. The film, which stars Daniel Day-Lewis in the main role and is based on Brown’s autobiography, garnered positive reviews from reviewers and moviegoers alike. However, several viewers were disappointed that the film concluded on a joyful note, despite the fact that Brown’s real life did not.

Lust For Life (1956)

Director: Vincente Minnelli

Runtime: 2h 2min.

Probably my favorite from the list. Kirk Douglas plays Vincent van Gogh, a great artist. The film chronicles van Gogh’s life, depicting how he became a painter, his life during the height of his profession, and, finally, his death, and is based on Irving Stone’s novel of the same name. This Dutch painter was obsessed with art, as this film brilliantly depicts. Lust For Life, which was shot on location in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, was a box office flop, but it did garner four Academy Award nominations, including one for Anthony Quinn, who plays Paul Gauguin.
