Anyhow... This isn't the only interesting way his life and work are being remembered. A memorial to the director was revealed yesterday in Amsterdam. Aptly called The Scream, the sculpture features a progression of profiles, meant to be Van Gogh's, of a mouth opening into a scream. It obviously reflects the director's life and pursuit of free speech, but it also has that eerie invocation of the man's death -- even more-so because the memorial rests near the spot where he was murdered. It definitely says a lot more than a bust of a famous person, a general on a bucking steed or any other type of typical monument fare. For the foreseeable future, Theo will be screaming, reminding people of his death and his belief in free speech.
