Hand-painted, with love: Loving Vincent

In a story depicted in oil painted animation, a young man comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist’s final letter and ends up investigating his final days there. With computer generated effects and digital 3D sculpting having become the norm for animation in cinema, Loving Vincent – a 2D animated film completely done in oil paintings – is a frontier- and groundbreaking film.

Molly's Game

Molly’s Game pulls a poker face? Nope, we don’t know how the game works

Honestly, I don’t really get poker. I get confused about which card combinations are worth more than others. In fact, I have a hard time remembering the card combinations that make up the different game hands. There are more versions of the game than you can shake a hand of soon-to-be-lost money at. And to complicate my complete lack of understanding even more, I have a hard time grasping how poker could be considered a game of skill given that a normal deck of cards has a bafflingly massive amount of shuffle combinations [if you don’t believe me just google the 52 Factorial]. If you consider poker a game of skill, don’t take these comments all too seriously though, for as I said, I am completely useless at the game to start with.
