Pollock

Years of Ed Harris' life went into realising this biopic of action painter Jackson Pollock. As director, he's workmanlike, though he does catch the exhilaration of the artist at work. As star, he's superb, avoiding clichés to present Pollock as troubled, selfish and unsympathetic. Oscar-winning Marcia Gay Harden and Jennifer Connelly give layered support. DVD EXTRAS: Commentary from Ed Harris, deleted scenes, Making Of... featurette, Ed Harris interview, filmographies and trailer.
