John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Despite an occasional excess of sentiment and politics that are sometimes naive, 'Wrath' remains essential viewing...

Like To Kill a Mockingbird, [it's] one of those rare motion pictures that perfectly captures the essence of its source material without compromising it in any way.

The Grapes of Wrath, whether in novel or movie form, remains a shockingly potent work of social criticism to this day.

John Ford transforma a trajetória da família Joad em um poderoso manifesto político que, mais de 60 anos depois, mantém-se tragicamente atual.

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.

The Grapes of Wrath was often named the greatest American film, until it was dethroned by the re-release of Citizen Kane.

John Ford's adaptation of the John Steinbeck novel is moving and heartfelt, despite its random structure and rambling, overwrought (and overly political) narrative.
