    Like Nicholas Ray's previous movie (Johnny Guitar), this influential, beloved misunderstood-youth classic is essentially a Freudian western, with switchblades replacing six-guns. Jim Stark (James Dean), the loner whose parents have have to move from town to town because he keeps getting in trouble, is like a weary gunslinger who just wants someplace peaceful to hitch his horse. But he can't, because "outlaws" persist in challenging him. (Significantly, the law is no help.) Jim's father (Jim Backus) is a milksop, his…

    Jim Stark: "You're tearing me apart!"

    Jim's Mother: "What?"

    Jim Stark: "You say one thing, he says another, and everybody changes back again".

    The story is about a teenager who leaves his old home town to start a new continues to rebel against the rules and conformities while falling in love with someone unlike him.

    Since I'm a movie reviewer and in my past reviews I reviewed old classic movies just to add it to the watch collection. But I…

    The year is 1955. Economic prosperity has hit the US and the idea of the American dream is in full effect. But something else is changing. The transition between childhood and adulthood is suddenly becoming a more noticeable and important change. The term ‘teenager’ had only been invented in the 1920s, and now it's at the forefront of American society. What’s wrong with adolescents these days? We give them cars, we give them expensive jackets, what else do they want?…

    Such a wonderful film that any teenage boy over the age of 15 can relate to. I didnt realize that Dennis hopper was also in this. The lone wolf if all films and I love every second of it, I wasn't quite the fan of the obsession that Plato had for Jim, and when the relationship of Jim and Judy happened? I loved their chemistry immediately mostly cause of how similar their lives were at home.

    Part of Vprento’s Top 150 Movies of All-Time

    My father recommended this to me a few years ago, but I finally watched it today after my best female friend said she loved it. It's rare when people my age watch movies older than 1990, so you can imagine my excitement when my friend mentioned a movie from the 1950s, a movie that has always been on top of my watchlist.

    Rebel Without a Cause is a phenomenal movie depicting teenage…

    Rebel Without a Cause is effortlessly cool thanks to James Dean's excellent lead, smooth dialogue, pacing and relatable characters/story. The cinematography here seemed very ahead of its time, the first ten or so minutes in the police station was instantly absorbing and the climax was bittersweet, and fitting. Rebel Without a Cause is deliciously confident with itself and no doubt a film of its era with switchblades and greaser-like characters, but it's themes are timeless, it's style is unforgettable and it's structure is suave.

    No pop culture quotation, no irony, nothing resembling an urge to be cool—and it's still one of the greatest (the greatest?) teen movies ever made.

    Rebel Without a Cause came along at just the right time for me. I was on the edge of seventeen, fresh off an emotional breakdown, that one undesired side-effect of first world privilege. I was unsure of what I wanted to do with my life and tortured by the realization that I was the only person responsible for myself. I had everything but still wanted something that wasn’t tangible or even describable.

    The teenagers in Rebel Without a Cause were…
