WHO THE #$&% IS JACKSON POLLOCK? | AUG 20
When Teri Horton, a 73-year-old former long-haul truck driver with an eighth-grade education, bought a painting for $5 at a thrift shop, she didn't know that it would pit her against the highest and mightiest people in the art world and perhaps change forever the way art is authenticated. (PG-13, 2006, 1 hr 14 min) 


FRIDA | SEP 24
