  1. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Rumble Fish

  2. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    All the little kids with the pumped-up kicks. If Coppola remembers something from the 50's of his youth, it is not its glossy innocence but quite the opposite, the awakening of the beat generation. He understood that nostalgia is not only something that was, but most importantly something that is lost for the rest of time. And when you'll be old, you'll be standing here wondering how did it all go by...

  3. EdieEmm's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    A fairy-tale of mythical masculinities. But, boy, it’s glorious! Aesthetically so perfect it’s practically parody; like Coppola utilized a 'YA cinema', with every device a little amplified, (to always beautiful, sometimes comic, effect) to tribute that classic work of YA lit. Fun; not very subtle; sometimes downright goofy. Mickey Rourke's Motorcycle Boy is unf disarmingly sexy... The whole thing's a delight. 3.75

  4. Rocco's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    A gloriously schmaltzy, swooningly expressionistic piece of art that's practically ripe with the scent of tortured, delicate masculinity and adolescent longing. You can catalogue its influences all you want, but it bests all of them with its dauntless heart.

  6. Jason's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    One of my least favourite tendencies in popular film commentary is that ol' insistence by many commentators that film style should never deviate from a pure servicing of the content. RUMBLE FISH is testament to the great things that can happen when bravura style is employed ultimately for the sake of style itself. Coppola's self-described art film for teens is an expressionistic voluptuary. Pops off the screen.

  7. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Fascinating and filled with references. The ideal movie to analyze if you're studying films. Unfortunately, I can't consider it as a masterpiece because of its last part which, as in most of Francis Ford Coppola movies, is weaker than the rest of the film. Highly recommended though.

    This is where the fish lives.

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Parfaitement maîtrisé, un film sombre et envoûtant sous des aspects de tragédie... www.cinefiches.com

  10. Dalibor's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    All style and no substance. A movie that is mesmerizing to watch, but just impossible to care about. Coppola had a couple of similar ventures into a male inter-family relationships and generational gaps, but this time he is inviting no one. Mickey Rourke's character, at it, is one of the most irritatingly enigmatic I have seen.

  16. lina maj's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    4 stars for the cinematography.

  17. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Wenn du Rumble Fish nicht magst, wirst du ihn hassen. In Rumble Fish ist alles Oberfläche, alles Style. Die Emotionen, die Wirkung des Films scheinen bloss entliehen zu sein. Es ist in Hollywood unüblich, einen Film wie Rumble Fish zu machen: Einen merkwürdig experimentellen Film, der auf eine profane Geschichte setzt... mehr auf cinegeek.de

  20. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Here lies proof for why Mickey Rourke is an amazing actor and why Francis Ford Coppola is an inventive and daring filmmaker!

  21. MS1915's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    A film that really emphasizes the relationship between brothers in a way that isn't presented very often. I wish films like these could be presented to the masses in a commercial way, but far too many people right them off as "experimental" or whatnot. I think it's a film that tells the truth and does it in a way that is both artist and thought-provoking.

  22. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    for a movie where nothing works like it's supposed to, it's pretty good

  23. Alex Iamandiu's rating of the film Rumble Fish

  24. Kurt Walker's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    completely alive in every place where the ousiders is stagey and inert
