A highly revealing look at class differences stemming from a dispute between a crude 73 year old woman who bought what might be a Pollock painting and her detractors in the upper echelons of the art world.

The movie is an enjoyable look into the hypocrisy and prejudices of the art world as experienced by a down-to-earth woman with a heart of gold and a sense of principle to match.

The real star of the film is [subject Teri] Horton, whose straight-talking ways and supportive circle of friends are a stark contrast to the haughty insults of academia.

Who the $#%& Is Jackson Pollock? doesn't really answer the titular question, but it mesmerizes in its attempt.

Fascinatingly ambiguous tale and bizarre cast of characters make it one of the more entertaining documentaries in recent memory.

The movie is an entertaining stroll through a colorful gallery of characters including, in villain mode, former Metropolitan Museum of Art director Thomas Hoving.

For the film, the verdict is beside the point. Moses uses the plucky Horton's battle to make an oblique argument about class, and his target is the art-world Goliath.

While the forensics is marginally interesting, the most arresting piece of the film is Horton herself, as she asks of the art world, 'Who the hell do they think they are?'
