Editorial Reviews

In the late forties Life magazine featured a shy, brooding artist with a cigarette jutting from his mouth as he stood dwarfed by a canvas displaying a nearly indescribable orchestration of chaos. Overnight, millions of Americans received this image in their homes and businesses, and the legend of Jackson Pollock was born. Soon his controversial work and defiant attitude made him at once the star and the scourge of the art world. In the end, his tragic death at the top of his career, cemented his image forever as the James Dean of artists. This documentary traces the life and work of Jackson Pollock through revealing interviews and archival footage. Among the voices that relate the legacy are Lee Krasner, Pollock's wife and fellow artist, and Ed Harris (director and star of the film Pollock).

WOW! Though this is not actually the movie Pollock, and actually a 40 minute biography/precursor to the movie, it was wonderful! It had several interviews with freinds, fellow artists and other misc. aquaintences of Jackson's in it from Ruth Klingman to Kirk Varnedoe. They were short to the point and all very interesting, especially the Cedar Bar bar tender stories! In addition it had footage from the famous Hans Namuth movies of him at work and when he painted on glass while the camera was underneath(very hard to find footage!) This is a must to any Pollock freak. Caution there is some language unsuitable for classroom usage. Well worth the money if you like JP.

An excellent documentary. Combined with the Biography channel's version of this story, the Namuth film, Ed Harris's winning portrayal, and the books, you can finally gain an understanding of this tragic giant of the New Your School of Abstract Expressionism. Pollock was at best bipolar with a tragic addiction to alcohol and an overwhelming fear of both success and failure. Pollock has been one of my own muses and a great influences in my own artwork since my Mother gave me a copy of the Life magazine that contained the article shown in all of the reference works (except the Namuth film) when I was a young budding artist of 6 years of age. I still have that magazine and look at it once a year.

Tragic, tragic, tragic.

Sad story of course... He just never got it , life ..I mean....

He became a casualty of his own brief fame which really is sad..

Technique ...or the lack of "changing Technique" is a dead end for painters.. Everything must change , Evolve..... no one wants to see the same thing over and over obviously...and it must be torture for a painter who can't get past one stage of his evolution ...Very sad story Jack 's life was...

I will watch / buy anything that has to do with Jackson Pollock... and this documentary definitely lived up to my expectations. I do wish it would have had more actual interviews with Pollock but then again he really wasn't one to give loads of interviews. lol This is definitely worth the watch if you are a Pollock fan!
