Wonderful movie, but for adults and older teens.

In the same way a tap dancer innately understands the percolating syncopation of all jazz music, Ed Harris identifies character rhythms and physical possibilities in drama.

Looking Closer

Many films about artists indulge opportunities to depict people behaving recklessly. Harris seems more interested in showing us the nature of creativity.

Not a review, but an Interview with Ed Harris, who discusses Pollock among other roles.

You can decide for yourself if Pollock was a great artist. He wasn't such a great man, but at least he got a pretty good movie.

Passion can easily lead to self-indulgence, and that is certainly the unfortunate case here.

More than a straightforward biography charting Jackson Pollock's rise to prominence, Ed Harris' film is a penetrating study of the work ethic as it applied to one of America's great post-war painters.

Harris has created an enduring portrait of this man, self-destructive, violent and difficult, who changed the face of American abstract expressionism.

If ever there were an artist to prove that the art is bigger than the artist, it was Jackson Pollock. Like him, this film embraces pain and chaos and self-loathing and returns beauty.

Harris as an actor does justice to his long-term passion to play Pollock.

It tracks a mythology of creativity which runs from Caravaggio to Patti Smith, and is running still, unended.

...can't ever seem to find its way out of Denis Leary's all-purpose tortured artist biopic template: 'I'm drunk, I'm nobody. I'm drunk, I'm famous. I'm drunk, I'm dead.'

Harris spent most of the past 10 years trying to bring Pollock's story to the screen, and his passion is evident in nearly every scene of the film.

Harden deserves recognition more than her co-stars, if only because she creates the sole sympathetic character.

Only seems straightforward because the complexity of its relationships and intelligence of its details have been handled with such ease.

Most of Pollock, save for the last act, feels refreshingly different from most other bio-pics. Outstanding.

Jackson Pollock may have been the wild beast who broke through the ice, but Ed Harris proves to be a tame animal indeed.
