Dripped: Animated life of Jackson Pollock

I remember the first time I ever heard of  Jackson Pollock. It was in art class and my teacher Mr. Robinson was telling the story of this artist who was a member of the early abstractionist movement who enjoyed painting while taking a swig of whiskey and smoking a cigarette. Mr. Robinson was an exceptional story teller so his story sounded a lot cooler than what I just retold.
