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
