Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The Grapes of Wrath is just about as good as any picture has a right to be; if it were any better, we just wouldn't believe our eyes.
Fresh: The Grapes of Wrath is possibly the best picture ever made from a so-so book.
Fresh: It is an absorbing, tense melodrama, starkly realistic, and loaded with social and political fireworks.
Fresh: The Grapes of Wrath was often named the greatest American film, until it was dethroned by the re-release of Citizen Kane.
Wrath of the Grapes
A great film with a slow pace, not to my tastes but still a classic....
Longest 2 hour movie I think I've sat through..
Not for everybody. Does age make something a classic because I'm scratching my head on this one.
Great movie and definitely a classic!
