Rumble Fish (1983)

Francis Ford Coppola directs Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke and Diane Lane in the teen gang movie filmed in rich black and white.

This movie pervs hard on barely legal Diane Lane. This movie looks fantastic but has little to it. This movie loves a clock… tick tock… time is running out. This movie ain’t as good as The Outsiders even though it tries a lot harder. This movie proves that having Dillon, Rourke, Nic Cage, Larry Fishburne, Tom Waits and Dennis Hopper jostling for centre stage can somehow still somehow produce a boring, one-note result.
