Rene Jones is one of those truly great British directors that came from a long line of directors. He had worked with both Peter Jackson and George Lucas before landing his first film, Amadeus. From there he went on to direct several movies including Love Actually, Hugo, and There’s Something About Mary. Now he has released the movie Gods on DVD.
If you like your movies serious and with a touch of humor, then this will definitely be of interest to you. Gods opens and closes with a dramatic montage of events that take place in New York City. In the center of it all is a car accident involving Jones’ character, Vincent van Gogh. As it happens, Van Gogh was talking to an artist about how life should be. When he was attacked by a mugger, he had an attack that left him paralyzed from the neck down. This story brings a little lightness to what would otherwise have been a very somber film.

You’ll immediately understand the plot when you see the movie. Jones has chosen to make a movie based on the life of the great Dutch artist, Rembrandt. He explains it in a way that almost makes you feel for him because he certainly had his struggles with self-confidence and public image. He never quite got it and now he is confined to a wheelchair due to those struggles.
Jones does a wonderful job of chronicling Vincent’s life. The style of the film is a bit confused at times, but it works well once the plot takes a turn for the dramatic. The story follows Vincent’s friend and associate, Theo, as he attempts to help Vincent recover. Along the way, Jones captures various aspects of the artist’s work including his colors. In one scene he even includes Vincent’s soup can. In addition, Jones correctly weaves history and actual events into the story to create a kind of alternate reality that gives the viewer a look into the artist’s world.
I enjoyed the performances of most of the actors, especially Jones’ terrific use of color. The music is decent, but not as memorable as I would have liked. The one piece of music that really stuck out to me was Jones’ choice of “Purcell” from The Royal Scam. I know some people consider this track too “clunky”, but for a film that has as many visual flourishes as this one does, I think it was worth paying for.
Overall, this is a fun and entertaining movie. If you like dramas and movies that tell the tale of a person slowly evolving into a much greater person, then definitely check out Rembrandt. It’s a great film…
