xoconostle's rating of the film Rumble Fish

One of Coppola's most unfairly underrated films. I remember him saying that he "wanted to make an art film for kids." I was in my late teens when "Rumble Fish" was released and thought it poetically captured the sense of fleeting youth and the perils of living life aimlessly. Superb performances across the board, and some of the best B/W cinematography of the 1980s (along with "The Elephant Man" and "Raging Bull.")
