In many respects a traditional biopic, Pollock begins in 1941 when Pollock meets Krasner, who encourages him and attracts the attention of supportive critic Clement Greenberg (Jeffrey Tambor) and benefactor Peggy Guggenheim (Amy Madigan). As Pollock rises from obscurity to international acclaim, Harris brings careful balance to his portrayal of a driven creator who found peace during those brief, sober periods when art brought release from his tenacious inner demons. The film offers sympathy without sentiment, appreciation without misguided hagiography. As an acting showcase it's utterly captivating. As a compassionate but unflinching exploration of Jackson Pollock's intimate world, there's no doubt that Harris captured the essence of a man whose life was as torturous as his art was redeeming. --Jeff Shannon
Absolutely stunning performances by Ed Harris and Marcia Gay Harden.
Still one does not walk away from the film feeling that one has finally "gotten" Pollock, assuming such a thing is even possible.
There are many scenes of him creating his poured paintings and these are copies of well known short films taken of the artist at work.
My opinion here could be a little biased because I took art classes and never had a real grasp of "expressionist" art. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Edie

This is as good as a 'Hollywood' bio pic gets, especially as it is about some drunken artist, no less! Read morePublished 2 months ago by RJ Nuzzi
