Pollock, the portrait of the troubled and self-destructive artist Jackson Pollock, makes its way to DVD and Columbia/TriStar should be commended for the fine disc they've produced. The image, which uses an anamorphic transfer framed at 1.85:1, is outstanding, with only a small number of distracting elements. Colors are bright and well saturated, but the most effective part of the transfer might just be the flesh tones, which are near perfectly reproduced. The 5.0 English track is certainly adequate for a film like this, though there is no use of the surrounds and only a limited amount of sound from the front left and right speakers. As for extra material, this disc has a good selection of rather impressive features. First up is a commentary track from the very soft-spoken director/actor Ed Harris. Though at times he mumbles and is difficult to understand, his love for art and filmmaking is evident. Equally important, though relatively short, is an excellent 20-minute featurette covering many aspects of the production. Also included is the Charlie Rose interview with Harris where he goes into even more detail about his passion for the artist and the desire to get this project made. Four deleted scenes, along with two trailers and some filmographies, round out this nice special edition.
