Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?

I recently saw the movie "Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?", and I highly suggest it to other artists. It's about a woman who bought what MIGHT be a Jackson Pollock painting, for $5.00 in a thrift store. She then starts on a journey to prove that it is real. If real, it could be worth tens of millions of dollars. What I found interesting about it is, there are scientists who found scientific evidence that proves that it's real, but the art world denies it because there is no paperwork to prove it's history. A group of un-named art experts declared it a fake. Which is more important, the paperwork or the scientific evidence?
