This film left me feeling like I had really been somewhere else than just watching a movie from my recliner. Very touching. It was a great film.

Ed Harris' portrayal of Pollock is enjoyable. I watched it as if it were a semi documentary on Pollock and his art. Anyone interested in that time period will find a good read in the biography: Jackson Pollock written by Evelyn Toynton (2012) which fleshes out Pollocks life and puts everything in its historical context. The modern art movement, artists struggles at the time and how abstract expressionism came to be.

One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.

Marcia Gay Harden was amazing and Ed Harris immersed himself in all things Pollock. The extras are well worth watching as well.

A film based on the life of the troubled artist. Very interesting--very much enjoyed Marcia Gay Harden's role.

Fellow artists and lovers Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner are at the center of New York's 1940's art scene, but as Krasner neglects her work to push Pollock's career forward, Pollock begins to unravel emotionally. Pollock and Krasner escape to the country to marry, and soon, Pollock creates the work that makes him the first internationally-famous modern painter in America. But with fame and fortune comes a volatile temper and severe self-doubt; before long, Pollock's life threatens to explode"--Container.
Ed Harris, Marcia Gay Harden, Tom Bower, Jennifer Connelly, Bud Cort, John Heard, Val Kilmer, Robert Knott, Amy Madigan.
