Oh James. How could you leave us like this?
I expected too much from Giant, and thus it couldn’t possibly deliver. It’s a slightly above average film elevated by a fantastic cast. It’s frankly way too long and even I started to tire of James’ caricature of Kane. Of course every Dean fan will continue to seek out Giant on late night television or in creaking secondhand DVD stores, but I shan’t be in much of a hurry to watch it again.
