  2. Morten Halskov Jensen's rating of the film Pollock

    Genset 16. oktober 2016. Rigtig fin film, gode male scener, og Ed Harris er fantastisk, som den destruktive alkoholiserede og selvoptagede Jackson Pollock. I filmen møder vi hele slænget der var noget i den amerikanske modernisme i efter krigstiden.

  3. bryanvmh's rating of the film Pollock

    Self-indulgent in an actorly way

  4. Bernardo_'s rating of the film Pollock

  5. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Pollock

    One of the few artist biopics that seems genuinely interested in the art.

  6. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Pollock

    Strong performances anchor this picture. Especially by Harden

  7. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film Pollock

    Well acted, especially by the leads, but a rather underwhelming and straightforward biopic. An enjoyable film but not one which provoked any real thinking about the nature of creativity, aesthetics, let alone abstract expressionism - and that seems a shame given its subject.

  8. Ben Whitcombe's rating of the film Pollock

    *joke about this being kind of a mess but not in the good way that a Jackson Pollock painting might be* Still, some of the art sequences inspired me to pick up a paintbrush again, which is definitely to the film's credit.

  9. chazell's rating of the film Pollock

  10. JordanBrooks's rating of the film Pollock

    A naked, agonizing look at a tortured American icon. Harris miraculously pulls off his dual roles in a way distantly reminiscent of Welles. Rarely do biopics deliver such a raw emotional punch, but Harris pulls it off with an effortless grace.

  11. raggiodisole's rating of the film Pollock

    Outstanding performances from Ed Harris and Marcia Gay Harden, never better. A solid if unspectacular telling of the life of the adult Pollock

  12. Penelope q's rating of the film Pollock

    Excellent biography of Pollack, really enjoyed this film.

  13. The Heff's rating of the film Pollock

    Great film with superb acting and directorial debut from Harris...recommended.

  14. nickolia's rating of the film Pollock

    interesting (i didn't know much about Pollock) but also kinda boring.

  15. Rob vincent's rating of the film Pollock

    I'd love to compare this to Minnelli's Van Gogh. The film works by showing 'the surface' of the artists dysfunctional personality and relationships. And here the film benefits from the superb Marcia Gay Harden. (Although she has some of the worst lines: "Wow. you're really making a breakthrough here Jackson"). But the film fails to communicate Pollock's connection to painting and the overpowering need to create.

  16. Paul Relf's rating of the film Pollock

    Some intense scenes. You can tell this was a labour of love for Ed Harris.

  17. PFL's rating of the film Pollock

    An elegant study of the great artist. Ed Harris' direction is thoughtful and poised, whilst his portrayal of Pollock himself is compelling and complex; a performance of understated virtuosity. Marcia Gay Harden is equally impressive in the role of Lee Krasner and Jeff Beal's pleasing score is another of the film's highlights.

  18. swamiJ's rating of the film Pollock

    Beautiful if somewhat harrowing film. The music is great and I thought it was Thomas Newman, but it is in fact Jeff Beale. I think he has taken more than a splash of American Beauty, 6 Feet Under, etc. It is definitely the voice of Newman channelled by Beale. It works effectively in the painting sequences. Music is mostly used in moments of reflection and creativity. Never overused, so good music editing! :)

  19. smndvdcl's rating of the film Pollock

    The abstract expressionist and tortured 'automatic' artist has his professional and personal life skilfully, cinematically articulated by Harris. The dysfunctional genius, the aggressive alcoholism, the philandering misogyny and erratic madness are all present; with intriguing characterisations of Greenberg and Guggenheim. A fairly functional biopic that sticks to a linear narrative structure.

  20. Susana Bessa's rating of the film Pollock

    Not so much about the man, but more about the tortured artist and his creative process. If it wasn't so simple and humble, there could be a danger of sounding smug and pretentious. But it works out quite well. Ed Harris threw himself onto a project he truly wanted to create in order to inspire. It isn't the greatest I've seen, but it does work.

  21. Andreea Stoica's rating of the film Pollock

    More interested in the painter itself, rather than the movie

  22. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Pollock

    One of the best biopics I've seen in years. Highly recommended.

  23. pedro eira's rating of the film Pollock

  24. Irma La Dulce's rating of the film Pollock

    - "How do you know when you're finished with a painting?" - "How do you know when you're finished making love?"
