Rumble Fish ★★★

A 92 minute Matt Dillon thirstfest

Aside from that, there we’re definitely some really cool visual moves and musical sections that made it worthwhile. As for the narrative itself, I couldn’t tell if I didn’t understand the movie or just didn’t like it. I’m guessing it’s a bit of both. On the one hand, it’s Francis Ford Coppola so like credit where credit is due, but on the other hand [possible spoilers but like not really] the protagonist went from sad angry hothead to sadder angry hothead like he was a dick to just about everyone in his life and then... the movie ends? Is that a spoiler? I don’t know anymore. I just really was fed up with him and a lot of the other characters for that matter. 

Either way

- Laurence Fishbourne
- Tom Waits
- Nicolas Cage

Are all in a room at once. So at least there’s that.
