Rating: 3.5/4 -- After testing various performers (including a newcomer named Paul Newman), Kazan went with the unknown Dean, a move that immediately yielded dividends. Full Review

John Steinbeck's painful biblical allegory -- Genesis replayed in Monterey, California, circa 1917 -- is more palatable on the screen, thanks to the down-to-earth performances of James Dean as Cal/Cain and Richard Davalos as Aron/Abel. Full Review

Rating: 3.4/5 -- James Dean is decidedly the highlight of the film. His Method acting techniques and uninhibited performing style cause him to stand out among the more conventional cast. Full Review
Far Out Magazine

Rating: 3.5/4 -- a reaction to our plutocracy's values and a further case for Dean as the sainted figure of rebellion that would fuel the generational schism of the '60s. Full Review

[I]t's easy to see why Dean set off a youthquake that still rumbles almost 50 years after his death....He captures brooding, adolescent confusion with a seductive, rock-star charisma.
