@Alex Kenny @JillianAR I really enjoyed it! It's lengthy but fantastic writing. I read East of Eden first.1 hour 57 minutes ago
Dave Kehr 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.
Geoff Andrew It's a film of great performances, atmospheric photography, and a sure sense of period and place.
