I First Saw In: 2016

Synopsis: A film about the life and career of the American painter, Jackson Pollock.

Did You Know? All of the painting in the film was done by Ed Harris himself.

And now a Word from the Guise:
Stephen Holden of The New York Times declared this “the first movie about a painter to transcend the gushing clichés found in movies that try to unravel the mysteries of artistic creation.” Humbly I disagree with Holden, it’s just as pretentious as any other art film. But that’s not to say that I didn’t like it. Ed Harris is a virtuoso. The chemistry between Harris and Marcia Gay Harden is impeccable.
