Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 12/15/2000
"...[Harris] seems as natural playing the abstract-expressionist superstar as he did playing John Glenn in THE RIGHT STUFF..."
Box Office - 11/01/2000
"...POLLOCK is beautifully shot....There is a nice cameo by Jeffrey Tambor..."
Film Comment - 01/01/2001
"...Moments of visceral, sensual beauty....Amy Madigan is tart and vivid..."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/23/2001
"...Ed Harris has always been a great actor in search of a role that could match his haunted intensity, and in POLLOCK, which he directed and stars in, he finds it..."
Rolling Stone - 03/01/2001
"...Harris brings an energy to [the] action-painting scenes that is pure and exhilarating....This is a towering performance of bruising inspiration..."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2002
"...Harris' film describes a confrontation between genius and human frailty....It tracks a mythology of creativity which runs from Caravaggio to Patti Smith, and is still running, unended..."
Total Film - 06/01/2002
"...Harden's performance conveys the guts and heart of the drama....You'll be drained, enthralled and maybe even a little inspired..."
Los Angeles Times - 12/15/2000
"...Ed Harris' film is as successful as it is because it passionately follows the artist's lead..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 02/16/2001
"...It contains all of the hum and buzz of the postwar New York art world....POLLOCK is confident, insightful work -- one of the year's best films..."
Wall Street Journal - 03/06/2014
"Its huge strength is the central performance. Pollock was the quintessential Action Painter, so it seems fitting that Mr. Harris athleticizes the process, rather than aestheticizes it."

  • The film was based on JACKSON POLLOCK: AN AMERICAN SAGA by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1991.
  • Ed Harris and Amy Madigan are an offscreen married couple.
