Put quite quickly in case you feel the feel the need to buy this right now, Pollock is quite one of the finest biographical films ever to see the light of day. The contrasts of Pollock's often shimmering art work and his dark personality and mental problems make Harris' own work his masterpiece that will take something very special to surpass it, not just through the stunning acting that he portrays, but the presence and the emotion his character throws right out of the screen. Seemingly Ed Harris was made for this role, being a long-term fan since he first received that book from his father about a man he knew nothing about. He even looks like Pollock himself. Not just that, but for the actual painting scenes Harris carefully studied Pollock's almost dancing movement as he spread the paint across the canvas. Basically, this is all-Harris, but as someone else.
The painting moments are stupendous and utterly breath taking. Through Harris you see how Pollock seemed to slip into his own unconscious world as he moved, cross-legged across the piece, splatting and dripping along the way. But it's the emotional moments that are really what makes the film the chilling, thought-provoking masterwork that it is.Read more ›
Pollock the film effectively shows the development of the artist including his moment of greatest inspiration when he mistakenly drips paint onto his canvas and realises that it is still art. Much less salubriously it also shows us Pollock the man, a selfish and insensitive alcoholic.
Pollock includes very fine performances by the consistently good Ed Harris in the lead role and Marcia Gay Harden as Lee Krasner, Pollock's long-suffering partner who puts her own promising art career on hold to help his mercurial talents develop and be realised. Harris was nominated for an Oscar for his performance and Harden went one better and deservedly won an Academy Award.
Pollock is also directed by Harris who should be congratulated for portraying such an honest and unsentimental account of this most difficult of artists. It is an informative and thought provoking film, albeit one which is quite horrible and ugly at times, and is well worth seeing.
It's beautifully shot which makes the darker sides of Pollock's character even more poignant. The score adds feeling to the piece while not being afraid to have almost a whole scene with no music when he first encouraged into his lover's bedroom. Topped off by The World Keeps Turning by Tom Waits which you realise as soon as you hear it was the only song to end the film with.
The 18 certificate can only be a reflection of some of the language.
I started watching it again as soon as it had finished. Careful, if you appreciate art in the slightest, you'll be hooked.
The film started off fairly slowly showing Pollock (Ed Harris) in his younger days living in a tiny, basic apartment in New York. However, it didn't take long for the film to pick up pace and draw you into the world of Jackson Pollack from the period of 1941 onwards. During this time in his life he met his future wife, Lee Krasner (played by Marcia Gay Harden). She truly was his rock and without her it is unlikely that we would be left today with his wonderful legacy of art.
Throughout the film Harris captures the very essence of a creative and tortured mind whose only way of expressing himself and coping with his mental demons was through his art and liquor. We see Pollock live through the extreme highs and terrible lows brought on by his manic depression. Harris portrays these very different emotional states with utter believability.
Ed Harris is outstanding in his role as Pollock - I would go so far as to say this is the role that was meant for him and I can't imagine many other actors being able to bring Pollock so brilliantly to life. He well deserved his Oscar nomination for Best Actor - what a shame he didn't win. Harden also puts in a stellar performance which saw her being awarded an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
I can't recommend this film highly enough for anyone who enjoys biographical films or who just wants to know a little more about Jackson Pollock. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it.

Ed Harris plays main protagonist, as well as directing this film. Very disappointing direction, merely chronicling the artist's life. What a waste of time. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Adlerinternational
