  • Francis Ford Coppola directed this beautiful black-and-white version of S.E. Hinton's popular youth novel. RUMBLE FISH explores the relationship between a young street thug, Rusty James (Matt Dillon), and his older brother, the legendary Motorcycle Boy (Mickey Rourke). When Motorcycle Boy comes back to town, he finds Rusty James trying to imitate his former gang leader ways and their father (Dennis Hopper) trying to drink away a troubled past. The only color images in the film are the shots of the Siamese fighting fish that the color-blind Motorcycle Boy admires.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...[The] film achieves the status of monochrome dream-poem almost effortlessly..."
    Sight and Sound

    4 stars out of 5 -- "As an atmospheric expression of existential male anxiety, it's got a lot going for it and leaves quite an impression."
    Empire

    "...Beautifully photographed in black and white....Nicolas Cage is a strong presence..."
    Variety

    "...It's a kick to watch so many actors who are still with us posturing in a movie this self-consciously stylized..."
    USA Today

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[E]njoyable for the young cast. We're talking Matt Dillon, Nicolas Cage, Mickey Rourke and more. Interesting."
    Ultimate DVD

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] moody monochrome visuals, Police man Stewart Copeland's sparse, percussive score and blatant riffs on THE WILD ONE."
    Total Film

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]nformed by the director's upbringing....[The film] played like an homage to a 1950s teen movie."
