(FILM) Yeah, James Dean is an icon—a fate that has obscured his awesome acting talent, nowhere captured better than in Elia Kazan's East of Eden. Released in 1955, Dean's first major film spins John Steinbeck's twisted Cain-and-Abel story into a ravishing melodrama of filial division and family betrayal, boasting classic performances by Dean, Raymond Massey, Julie Harris, and Jo Van Fleet, all freshly pressed on a new 35mm print. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 329-2629. 7 pm and 9:15 pm, $8/$5 for members, through Sept 15.)
