Ed Harris’s 2000 passion project of iconic American painter Jackson Pollock.
Starring Ed Harris and Marcia Gay Harden

A powerhouse of a film, a tour de force for both Ed Harris and Marcia Gay Harden.

It’s important…
Essential…
To recognize and celebrate the films that exist, the filmmakers the bled and fought to get their vision from the page to the screen and all that entailed before the digital-age was upon us.

As Chris Hardwick has said multiple times:
“It’s a miracle movies ever get made.“

When you account for all the hoops you need to jump through, all the suits That misunderstand art and the acts of God needed to make a film come together…

Passion, Persistence and skin like a suit of armor were necessary to get all the stars to align to get your film on to a movie theater screen.

This…
This is one of those films.

A beautiful, poetic powerhouse.
