Rumble Fish

Coppola takes a noir approach to what is basically a coming of age story. The entire thing is stuck in the shadows, everything is smothered in thick fog. Considering it's based on a S.E. Hinton novel, I initially assumed it took place during the 1950s, but the movie itself doesn't reflect any of that, it presents a world unlike anything that ever existed or ever will, it is absolutely timeless.

Didn't blow my mind in a "now I want to make movies like this!" kinda way like it did the first time I saw it but found much more moving this time around. Haven't you ever felt like you were born in the wrong place or age?
