Before the young adult books became a bonafide industry for film options, there was S.E. Hinton. Alienated youth, rebellion, teen tragedy and angst for miles. I drank it up like someone else's goddamn milkshake. Rumble Fish screams art film being shot in beautiful black & white, starring a virtual who's who of iconic actors.
Summer nights are hot and this is that cool breeze coming in off the water, drying the sweat from your skin. So role yourself a j and go put the fish in the river.
