A sprawling family saga, with James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Dennis Hopper and Rock Hudson – what more could you ask for? The performances are outstanding, and the Texas landscape is just plain beautiful.

Let’s not forget the film also deals interestingly with both racial and class differences.

Dean's career ends with a bang...

Hmmm... there were a lot of things that I thought were pure genius about this film. However, in other ways, I was quite disappointed. Where I thought Giant was awesome was obviously the fantastic acting and directing. Also, it had absolutely breathtaking art direction and cinematography. On the other hand where I was slightly disappointed was that the scenes and pretty much the whole film was a bi... read more

Description: Sprawling, epic tale of a wealthy Texas rancher and his wife, their descendants and their life together over 25 years. Bick Benedict met his future wife Leslie while on a trip East to buy breeding stock, returning home with a bride. Living on a half-million acre ranch takes some getting used to for Leslie as does the rough and tumble lifestyle. They have children who have their own minds and are apt to disappoint their parents over their life choices. As Leslie says at one point, you can't live their lives for them you can only raise them. Bick Benedict's rival is a former ranch hand, Jett Rink, who inherits a tract of land from ... (more)

"1.11. Äärimmäisen pitkä megaeeposklassikko sisältää paljon tylsää pönötystä ja tuon ajan Amerikkaa. James Dean on oikeastaan aivan paska näyttelijä, joka vetää brandomaista sössötystä ja ilmeilee siihen malliin että kohta tulee pieru. Elokuvaa kehutaan erinomaiseksi kannanotoksi vähemmistöihin kohdistuvaa syrjintää vastaan, mutta 195 minuuttia sisältää ehkä neljä kaksiminuuttista syrjintäaihetta käsittelevää kohtausta. Loppu on sitten rasittavaa Teksasin meinink"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: September (13 movies items)

"First viewing - Sept. 3rd I was very very tempted to spend most of the weekend at the Paramount Theater, as they were screening East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause (actually I would still have skipped that one since I just saw it), the 1933 King Kong, and Giant. However, tickets were all full price (which makes no sense to me given two of those were daytime screenings), so I opted to just watch Giant and call it good enough. And I'm happy to say I'm satisfied with that decision. If you've see"
