Cian’s review published on Letterboxd:
Felt the urge to dig into Coppola's filmography after watching his Dracula. The man had the definition of a god-tier run through the '70s - only masterpieces - and then his career took an immediate death spiral between commercial bombs and critical flops. Films made explicitly to pay off debts, etc. I love this kind of stuff.
Rumble Fish was a pleasant surprise honestly. A very over-the-top story with a handful of moments that are profound and lyrical. The heavy accents and outdated boomer slang make this feel like a cartoon at points, but I can dig it. That's just the vibe this movie is operating under.
