Critics reviews

To quote Kehr, give the movie an ounce of respect and you’ll discover a remarkable aesthetic object. Vidor’s imposing imagery—constructed around the wide-open expanses and distant mountains that characterize the setting—situates the overwrought emotions within a stark, eerily underpopulated environment where one must make oneself larger than life to make any sort of impact on other people.
