That rare breed, a biopic that makes you want to learn more about its subject, as much as you can, as fast as you can.

Harris' painting technique is so convincing you really think you are watching Pollock at work. The rest of the film works well enough, but it is fairly slow going.

Harris' portrayal -- that rare specimen that deserves the plaudit 'tour de force' -- holds to a world-wise respect as the story dangles maudlin indulgence in front of him.

That altogether rare movie about an artist that works because it takes the art itself for granted.

A brilliant acting exercise for its incredible cast.

Succeeds in capturing a personality with all its infuriating and inspiring facets.

Just -- yes, just -- one more film about that perennially obdurate subject, an artist.

Almost good enough to transcend the typical tale of a tortured artist.

Only the artwork and scenes focused on the process of painting get near the truth. The rest is hazy bluster.

You root for Pollock despite its shortcomings.
