5.0 out of 5 stars A thoughtful and informative DVD for newfound Dean admirers, December 29, 2007
By 
Anya (Helena, Montana) - See all my reviews
This review is from: James Dean - Sense Memories (American Masters) (DVD)
This DVD is well paced, well made and informative for the individual who is new to the history of James Dean. I enjoyed the tone and visual aesthetic of this DVD and thought it fair and slightly sentimental (in a positive manner) on the subject of the man behind the persona. It concentrates on his 3 films and of his search for artistic freedom, and the overwhelming will of his free spirit. This DVD only interviewed those who actually knew James Dean, instead of a third party he said, she said situation. There is no question that these people interviewed cared deeply for him. I took away that James Dean was a maven of artistry in all forms, that he maintained a true understanding of people and life and that he was a contradictory, tender, and strong human being--almost beyond himself. A very nice hour spent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Viewing, March 10, 2009

This review is from: James Dean - Sense Memories (American Masters) (DVD)
If you are a James Dean fan this dvd is worth viewing. It is a candid perception from people who knew him, such as Martin Landau. It also gives a sense of the time in which he lived, the mid 1950's.

This is wonderful for a true fan. Interviews with people who actually knew and cared for Jimmy Dean, great footage. It's clear those involved in the production really tried their best. Great buy, I'll treasure it forever.

This review is from: James Dean - Sense Memories (American Masters) (DVD)
Another great tribute to a star...gone before his time.This dvd runs 53-minutes and it's in color & black and white.It's a very,very well done tribute...only if you are a JAMES DEAN fan...as I am still today.I was 15 when he died..now..so many decades later..he's still remember as "THE REBEL......WITH A CAUSE".Pick it up..it's worth the money to add to your collection.It's about his very last year before his death...with the making of all three classics in one year.GIANT was made in 1955...not 1956...it was release a year after his death in 1956.All three of his movies..were made in late 1954..into September of 1955.Catch it..you will like it.AMERICAN MASTERS..did a great tribute to him.Thankyou. Till later. Jack
