    -- James Dean 的演出 跟名氣比 反差很大...
    -- 為什麼1955年的片裡會哼出 1977 Star Wars的主題曲 ??

    Dean's mesmerising performance is heartbreaking and life-affirming. He is a magnetic screen presence.

    A note on the viewing: Viewed in HD from The Film Foundation's brand new 4K remastered edition, supported by Warner Bros and Gucci. The restoration is very impressive, despite occasional moments of excessive noise (and I'm not convinced it is all grain, so this may suggest slight transfer issues). There are also weird moments of blue highlights appearing around the characters. A good Blu-ray image though not perfect.

    I can see the influence and impact that this movie had when it came out. Today, i feel that it is a little dated but a classic I can understand.

    Yeah, this was a real good way to get back into film-watching after a week-long break. Really, really solid movies.

    1954/55 was just an amazing time for film, wasn't it?

    In the most iconic of his three starring roles before his premature death, Jimmy Dean portrays 24 hours in the life of troubled teen rebel Jim Stark in Ray's famous and influential film. Able support comes from Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo, two others who were fated to die young and in tragic circumstances. Dean takes centre stage, though, and his powerful performance is a volatile mixture of pain, rage and confusion..

    You know...after Buzz dies, none of the main characters seem THAT disturbed or upset by it. Jim has the freakout with his parents and tries to talk to the cops, but other than that in the second half of the movie they all move on. Judy pretty much instantly turns to falling for Jim within hours of her boyfriend driving off a cliff. Plato is just always trying to cling on to someone. Seeing a boy drive off a cliff…

    Mic Eddy is a homeless, with red hair and pale skin and an outgoing disposition. He's in his twenties, and has obtained and lost some jobs, but he doesn't care about that. What tears him apart is the lack of respect that he experiences daily, because, frankly, everybody dislikes him. He acts like a child, gets in people's faces, destroys property without thinking. He does this because he must have attention and if he can't get positive attention, he'll get…

    "Rebel Without a Cause," aka "Teen Angst: The Movie."

    My major problem with this movie was the pacing. Everything that happens in this movie literally happens in 24 hours. Maybe if it had been spread out over a month it would be okay, but the pacing in "West Side Story" was more believable than this.

    However, that doesn't keep it from being an interesting and enjoyable movie. "East of Eden" is my favorite out of James Dean's movies, but this could have been just as great if it weren't for the fact this was all so fast.

    Rebel Without a Cause is undoubtedly the film that cemented James Dean's immortal image in the public eye. Packed with fine performances from its leading trio (Dean, Wood and Mineo) and iconic set-pieces that defined a whole generation, Dean's ability isn't quite pushed to the heights it was in East of Eden, but his second film nevertheless lives up to its legendary status in 2014.

    No one has ever made drinking milk from a bottle look so cool.
    Paving the way for teen dramas and indie flicks the world over, this is beautiful film which at times feels melodramatic. But ultimately it is a picture of the journey from being a boy to being a man, and the harm that can come from absent father figures. It captures so well what it is like to be a teenager in America. With all our school shootings,…
