CGiii Comment

An epic - in every sense of the word.

Luz is a spur-wearing lesbian...a woman who prefers to herd cattle than make lurve...

Watching Rock/Bick making a man out of his 4 year old son is...excruciating.

Dean's performance is awkward...bordering on the ludicrous.

The script is racist, sexist, misogynistic...and, rather naive.

George Stevens won the Oscar for Best Director.

James Dean lost his life during filming...ensuring the success and longevity of the film. RIP.
