    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.

    It's a film of great performances, atmospheric photography, and a sure sense of period and place.

    Not only one of Kazan's richest films and Dean's first significant role, it is also arguably the actor's best performance.

    In short, there is energy and intensity but little clarity and emotion in this film. It is like a great, green iceberg: mammoth and imposing but very cold.
