Tortured abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock turned the art world on its ear with his shockingly original paintings. As played here by Ed Harris (who also directed), he's alternately neurotic, misogynistic and brilliant. The Oscar-winning film follows Pollock from the launch of his career by Peggy Guggenheim (Amy Madigan) through his marriage to fellow artist Lee Krasner (Marcia Gay Harden) -- a union tested by his infidelity and alcoholism.
