This film was the beginning of the end for Pollock -- he'd been sober for a few years, and when he finally saw the finished film, he was appalled by how much it laid bare his painting process. This freaked him out, and he fell into a deep depression. Eventually, some of his friends from NYC convinced him to drink again, they all made a painting together (Blue Poles), then Pollock alcoholically drifted back into his earlier, sorta-object-based abstraction for a bit before dying.
