Critic Review - TV Guide's Movie Guide

A nicely told, occasionally highly emotional story, but the main purpose of the film seems to be to give writer-director Elia Kazan an excuse to pat himself on the back.

***(SPOILER)

"pat himself on the back"...wow, you obviously did not see this movie. His uncle (NOT KAZAN HIMSELF) giving himself to bring his family to America as a "shoeshine boy" so they are relieved of religious persecution. Yeah, he definitely "pat himself on the back". Pretty ignorant analysis.
