To make the impressive biopic of the famed American abstractionist Jackson Pollock, Ed Harris raised the money, directed the film, played the leading role, and did all the looping, splattered drip-painting himself 💦
One Screening Only! On 35mm:
The film opens at the 1950 exhibition that would ensure Pollock's fame as a leading Abstract Expressionist, then flashes back to nine years earlier, where an often sodden Pollock is struggling with his art while living with his brother and sister-in-law in a tiny Manhattan apartment.
Richly peopled with such art-world stars as Peggy Guggenheim, Willem de Kooning Art, and Helen Frankenthaler, Harris' intensively researched and intensely realized portrait of the self-destructive painter is among the best to portray the artistic process. Harris received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor, while co-star Marcia Gay Harden won the Best Supporting Actress statue for her tough portrayal of Pollock's long-suffering wife Lee Krasner, a great artist in her own right.
