« An unmissable film, made with a delirious compassion. » (Chicago Reader)
« A teenpic landmark and easily the best-directed in the genre’s history, this empathetic insight into juvenile alienation has lost little of its relevance even six decades on. The red-jacketed, Method-pouting James Dean steals every scene, but the ensemble playing is nothing short of exemplary. » (Empire)
