This film left me feeling like I had really been somewhere else than just watching a movie from my recliner. Very touching. It was a great film.

Ed Harris' portrayal of Pollock is enjoyable. I watched it as if it were a semi documentary on Pollock and his art. Anyone interested in that time period will find a good read in the biography: Jackson Pollock written by Evelyn Toynton (2012) which fleshes out Pollocks life and puts everything in its historical context. The modern art movement, artists struggles at the time and how abstract expressionism came to be.

One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.
