Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"[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." 06/03/2005 p.68

USA Today
"Elia Kazan's classic movie of John Steinbeck's novel..." 06/03/2005 p.7E

Los Angeles Times
"EAST is not only one of Kazan's richest films and Dean's first significant role, it is also arguably the actor's best performance." 06/10/2005 p.E12

Sight and Sound
"[I]t's not hard to be seduced by the performances or by the photography, which makes arresting use of widescreen space and skewed angles..." 07/01/2005 p.84
