Ratings & Reviews

  1. Chase Vault's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Almost forgot how annoying 18-year-old boys can be. Anyway the film is quite compelling at first but gets pretty boring in the second half.

  2. George Bradley's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    9th July 2018. (RATING ***1/2)

  3. keremebrulee's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    I wish I had an older brother.

  4. Superfrog's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Photography is great, the scenes are well directed but the story feels like an excuse.

  5. Dan and Val Freeman's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    If it was by plot or Matt Dillon's acting this would be a poor film ... but this is a film where the style is the substance, great images, truly fantastic sound design (the scene of the younger brother following the motorcycle boy down the night streets after the pet shop coloured fish scene has to be pretty much the best sound design I've heard) and a mesmerising performance from Mickey Rourke.

  6. Thomas Moore's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    The most beautiful and expressive film I've seen from Coppola. From the breathtaking B&W cinematography to the subdued but poignant acting from a terrific cast. The whole film feels like a surreal, alternate universe where down on their luck characters move from shadow to shadow trying to find meaning in their lives.

  7. aleorca's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    If it is FFC's fave film its also one of my all-time best loved B&W films with Burum's deeply rich , burnished blacks accomplished by precise lighting contrast and tricks from German Expressionism. Dilllon is ok, Hopper hammy but Rourke up to his usual starry bad boy cool best

  8. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    I hadn't seen this in a very long time and had forgotten just how stridently it flaunts its expressionist heart, its extraordinarily crisp film noir palette and its Nouvelle Vague stylings. But then again its all about bravado in the face of time passing and (acute) perceptions changing as the clouds whorl briskly and indifferently in the sky above humid, smoky Tulsa.

  9. JJ Viau's rating of the film Rumble Fish

  10. -Firebird's rating of the film Rumble Fish

  11. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Although there are many similarities to The Outsiders, I have always felt that Rumble Fish was the better movie. It's very stylised, which can mean some viewers dislike the performances and/or fight scenes, but the mostly black and white cinematography is gorgeous and it hammers home the main point with an abundance of poetry that makes up for the lack of subtlety.

  12. raggiodisole's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    The Persistence of Memory...and Smoke. Or, Motorcycle Emptiness Or, He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother A Tom Waits appearance always adds something to a film though

  13. Pierre.F's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Grave bon film : image des poissons qui cherchent dans leur reflet une raison de se battre parce qu'ils sont élevés dans un trop petit aquarium.

  14. Ramzi's rating of the film Rumble Fish

  15. P D Dawson's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    With the style of Kazan's On The Waterfront, mixed with the sleepy social emptiness of early Jim Jarmusch films, Rumble Fish stands as a quiet masterpiece from the man who brought us The Godfather. The atmosphere is dreamlike, & the dialogue delivered sleepily & with echo, only heightens the feeling of alienation and disconnection within the world Dillon and Rourke occupy. For me, this is cinema at its most pure.

  16. Dead Sam's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    It helps to watch while a bit drunk but this is a very lovable film. A fun local legend with a family drama fit for the stage of Tennesse Williams. Complete with beautiful and perceptive backdrops sifted from a south western city.

  17. Linchen's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Very much the look and feel of an intimate play with superb b/w scenery and a great cast. A sad story about young and in their way ambitious men not able to live their dreams.

  18. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Une esthétique visuelle et sonore splendide pour cette légende urbaine au casting (jeune) remarquable. La bande son de Copeland, mais aussi les ambiances et bruitages, participent pleinement à cette sorte de féerie envoûtante. Le splendide N&B et ces incursions de couleur accompagnent parfaitement cet étonnant équilibre entre stéréotypes assumés et voyage intérieur. Les pandas sont peut-être en couleur finalement !

  19. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Rumble Fish

  20.'s rating of the film Rumble Fish

    As in some already known story, the myth is taking the whole room that should be the characters' depth and credibility. This is a movie made out of process metaphores about what a man should be and think. Too American to be true cinema.

  21. jacline huet's rating of the film Rumble Fish

  22. Matt's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    A stupid film full of non event set pieces.

  23. RICHARD's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    pour être plus précis : 4.5/5

  24. Korial's rating of the film Rumble Fish

    Being in the wrong play, unable to find a place in the world and not being able to comprehend it. When American cinema takes a step beyond its own conventions is where it shines. An important piece for the definition of the American mythology and an inspiration for later directors (see Lynch).
