  • 2nd viewing, 1st in 10+ years. Bolder and weirder than I remembered, with an unsettling opening: Jimmy J. (Richard Thomas) watching East Of Eden, a one-man Kuleshov effect of intercut over-the-top responses... Admirable, well-performed all-round — especially Dennis Quaid's as a hail-fellow-well-met jock — and surprisingly hard to get a handle on.
