Pollock


A look at celebrated American modernist artist Jackson Pollock, who was at his height during the 1940s and 1950s. Apart from inventing a new style of painting, he had a bad temper, made worse by his use of alcohol. Luckily his wife, also an artist, stood by him through the bad times before he found success.

Ian Douglas: Harris gives a good performance, but the audience quickly loses sympathy with his self-destructive habits, and the movie just plods along to its end...
