    East Of Eden

    Cal (James Dean) and Aron (Richard Davalos) are the sons of a modestly successful farmer and wartime draft board chairman. Cal is moody and embittered by his belief that his father favors Aron. Although both Cal and Aron had long been led to believe that their mother had died 'and gone to heaven,' the opening scene reveals Cal has apparently learned that his mother is still alive, owning and running a successful brothel in nearby Monterey.

    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.

    Los Angeles Times

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

    New York Times

    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.

    Rich historical detail and good visuals make interesting film.

    Catches fire in the clashes between Dean (as the bad brother) and Raymond Massey as his stiff-necked dad.

    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.

    East of Eden is set in 1917 but [James] Dean feels completely modern and contemporary, a boy not quite comfortable in his body.
    March 20, 2008

    Fine James Dean vehicle, one of few that put him into immortality.

    Ozus' World Movie Reviews

    Kazan had the bad sense to leave out the best parts from the lengthy book.

    Atlantic City Weekly

    James Dean's finest performance
