Who the $#%& is Jackson Pollock?

That's the title of a documentary that I see from today's New York Times "Holiday Movie Preview" opens at the IFC Center on Nov. 15. It's about "the 15-year struggle of Teri Horton, a 73-year-old former truck driver, to authenticate a $5 painting she bought in a thrift shop as a lost Jackson Pollock masterpiece." The title comes from her response when when an art teacher pointed out that the painting looked a lot like a Pollock.

The UK Telegraph has more on the story here. The movie's official site is here.
