A Portrait of James Dean: Joshua Tree, 1951

An intimate and dreamlike portrait of icon James Dean on the cusp of achieving fame.

“A nuanced portrayal of an entire era...JOSHUA TREE gives us an account of the process by which Hollywood molds an individual into its systemic image of a star. That it accomplishes this through a formal subversion of Hollywood's stylistic code...makes the message all the more subtle.”
