  At Eternity's Gate     At Eternity's Gate    A Movie.  Not a review but more of a "look".  And "look" may be the most appropriate word.  Written and directed by Julian Schnabel, the movie is visually appealing as you might imagine a film by the artist Schabel might be.   Vincent Van Gogh as the...
