dafoe, oscar—nominated willem dafoe, as we discovered vincent van gogh towards the later period of his life. i went to the museum in amsterdam, i said vincent van gogh? so we get his real life and his tussles with madness and with incarceration but also julian schnabel is attempting to show us the world he saw through his paintings visually represented. here is a clip. i'm telling you, you have to look inside. you keep saying look inside, i get it, i do. you keep repeating yourself. what do you think i'm doing? i don't invent the picture. i don't need to invent the picture. ifind it already in nature. ijust have to free it. all right. i'm just saying first think about your surface and how the paint will sit on it. get control over what you're doing. maybe you should work inside more. i spent all my life alone in a room. i need to go out, and work, to forget myself. i want to be out of control. i need to be in a feverish state. it is called the act of painting for a reason. all right, calm down. i don't want to calm down. the faster i paint, the better i feel. i can't stay here vincent.
