Rumble Fish ★★★★½

July 2018
Scavenger Hunt #40
TASK #11: A film made by a recipient of the Praemium Imperiale award!

Another fantastic mash-up of the directing finesse and prowess of Francis Ford Coppola and the rich source material of author S.E. Hinton following The Outsiders, Rumble Fish is one of the most criminally overlooked, underrated, and underappreciated films in Coppola's career, with beautifully written characters, outstanding performances, gorgeous black-and-white cinematography, and excellent storytelling and dialogue throughout.
