Rumble Fish - F.Ford Coppola (1983)

 
Bewitchingly square-jawed Matt Dillon as a modern James Dean, and a pristine Mickey Rourke as his enigmatic and revered older brother in Coppola's all but forgotten black & white reverie.
 
One of Coppola's more experimental opuses, though not his best.
The symbolism is over-wrought and simplistic while the script is just over-simplistic.
It has an adolescent feel about it, which I realized yesterday has nothing to do with it dating back from mine.
