Panthergirl's DVD Pick of the Week

This film is the riveting, real-life account of a gravelly-voiced, helmet-haired trailer park dumpster diver who buys a painting for $5 at a thrift shop which may very likely be a Jackson Pollock -- worth over $50MM. She is an amazing character... the filmmakers struck gold with this one. A person who can play herself better than any actress ever could. And the story is fascinating, suspenseful and educational. There are heros and villains (could Thomas Hoving BE any more obnoxious??) in this truly incredible journey.

Rent it. You'll be glad you did.
