Anybody seen the movie with Ed Harris? I just did and I think it's great. What a messed up person Pollock was!

Yeah, I thought they did a great job on that one! Made me want to paint again, and not many movies do that...

Yeah, the painting scenes were well done. I liked Ed Harris's portrayal. My favorite scene is when he went to the general store and traded a painting for a case of beer then rides the bike home while drinking it. I also liked Marcia Gay Harden's Lee Krassner. I can't think of anything they did wrong in that film. It's a fucking masterpiece in it's own right. I could be wrong though. I was riveted. People like that are really interesting.

> Yeah, the painting scenes were well done.

The best! Evidently, Ed Harris spent months practicing his painting moves. They also spent a lot of time recreating all of the paintings.

> I liked Ed Harris's portrayal. My favorite scene is when he went to the general store and traded a painting for a case of beer then rides the bike home while drinking it.

And then he drops the case of beer. It was so tragic, you really felt for the guy!

> I also liked Marcia Gay Harden's Lee Krassner.

Yeah, she was wonderful. Very cool and sexy!

> I can't think of anything they did wrong in that film.

Painting was my major in college, and I cut my teeth on the Abstract Expressionists like Pollock, deKooning, Kline, et al, and I also read the biography it was based on, and I thought they did an insanely excellent job on that movie.

Like I said, it made me want to paint -- especially the Guggenheim Mural scene -- and I think that?s a major accomplishment for a movie.

I thought so. They looked better than the usual prop paintings you get in movies. It was inspiring to watch him paint too. Funny thing about Pollock --I am pretty ignorant about him but after seeing this film I have strong feelings about his character --I hate people like him and yet I kind of admire his integrity at the same time. He really was an asshole to just about everybody including himself. I almost feel sorry for him but I don't.
I am somewhat inspired to paint by his character too. I can certainly relate with his drinking problem. I'm not quite that bad but I understand the Dionysiac tendencies in (or surrounding) making art. Thank god we have mushrooms and pot today. I assume they weren't as common then. Anyway, there is a lot to learn from that dude's story (for me). Yeah, I think it's a major accomplishment in filmmaking.

Unfortunately, many great artists, writers, musicians are assholes. Picasso, evidently, was quite a jerk socially as well. It seems to be an insecurity-driven ego type of thing. I just try and overlook and focus on the work. Alcohol also seems to take a personality with jerk potential and really allow it to flower and blossom

> Yeah, I think it's a major accomplishment in filmmaking.

I totally agree!
