Movie Reviews

A thoughtful and informative DVD for newfound Dean admirers
Anya | Helena, Montana | 12/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is well paced, well made and informative for the individual who is new to the history of James Dean. I enjoyed the tone and visual aesthetic of this DVD and thought it fair and slightly sentimental (in a positive manner) on the subject of the man behind the persona. It concentrates on his 3 films and of his search for artistic freedom, and the overwhelming will of his free spirit. This DVD only interviewed those who actually knew James Dean, instead of a third party he said, she said situation. There is no question that these people interviewed cared deeply for him. I took away that James Dean was a maven of artistry in all forms, that he maintained a true understanding of people and life and that he was a contradictory, tender, and strong human being--almost beyond himself. A very nice hour spent!"
Worth Viewing

(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a James Dean fan this dvd is worth viewing. It is a candid perception from people who knew him, such as Martin Landau. It also gives a sense of the time in which he lived, the mid 1950's."
