Drip & Splash & Drip & Splash & Drip & Splash (Ad Nauseum)

Of course, you are quite free to disagree with me on this point - But - (Personally speaking) I think that Jackson Pollock (as an artist) was an utter fraud and I cannot appreciate his work at all.

In this brief bio-documentary you can clearly see by the footage of Pollock "dripping & splashing" on a canvas that he wasn't putting any thought into what the hell he was doing.

In fact, he looked thoroughly bored from my perspective on things.

Anyway - Not only does this 52-minute "ArtHaus" presentation look at Pollock's artistic output during his rather short lifetime - But (surprisingly enough), it also points out that he was a miserable drunkard with an ugly & explosive personality, as well.

*Note* - In 1956 - Jackson Pollock (44 at the time) was killed, as a passenger, in a car crash.
