End Time: 10:00 PM
Artist Jackson Pollock revolutionized American painting in the 1940's with his exciting abstract canvases that used dripped and splattered paint in a manner at once excitingly physical and structurally intelligent. While Pollock became a heroic figure in the art world, his private life was nothing to envy, and this biography looks at both his professional triumphs and personal tragedies. Pollock was the first feature directed by actor Ed Harris, who also plays the title role; the cast also includes Val Kilmer, Marcia Gay Harden, Amy Madigan and Jennifer Connelly.
