Elia Kazan's sweeping bio-pic follows Emiliano Zapata Salazar's life from his reluctant advocacy for peasant land rights, to his role as one of the most legendary generals of the Revolution and his tragic assassination. Brando's intense performance as Zapata and Kazan's powerful direction act as weighty correctives to Hollywood's typical portrayal of the Revolution.
