Few actors have left their mark in such a short span of time as James Dean has. In the span of five years, a few supporting roles, and three starring roles, Dean became an icon, and a legend within the industry. Sadly, his greatest role, and the one he'd always be remembered for, would be one of his last. Just a month before the premiere of 'Rebel Without a Cause',…
Completely knocked me off my feet. It just keeps getting better, and better, and better.
I can't wait to watch this movie again, and again, and again.
A suspenseful tale with a gut-wrenching ending. James Dean is absolutely riveting as Jim Stark, a complex character with mixed feelings on who he wants to be. The first film to really touch on juvenile delinquency also happens to be one of the most honest.
A classic milestone for film. This marked a turning point of how young people were portrayed in film. James Dean is great and shows that he would've went on to do great things had he not died too young. This film was very important to me because it showed me that "old" movies could be great as well. It caused me to dig deeper into the cinematic past and helped me discover countless gems that are decades old, that have become important films in my life.
"You're tearing me apart!"
Wow. Several decades after the release of Rebel Without a Cause, I (and many other teenagers, I'd suspect) can relate wholly to the film and the characters. The fact that Rebel stars one of the most complex and dynamic actors to ever enter Hollywood is another plus.
James Dean is gorgeous. And he's also an excellent actor, hitting all the right notes in the film. His portrayal of the confused Jim Stark, wishing desperately to turn…
Oh but he does have a cause. To be FUCKING AWESOME.
I'm not a teenager anymore but somehow this has survived the transition beautifully. It's still achingly lyrical and genuine, and for me by a longshot the best film about adolescence ever made. What a perfect, bold script. What colors, what art. It's easy to lament that there was a time when Hollywood was so unafraid of emotional outpouring -- but part of what makes this so remarkable is I suspect it was an outlier even then.
I didn't think anyone could be cooler than cool. James Dean is.
Amazing film. Not what I expected. I loved it from start to finish.
I feel in love with every character and this is just a classic movie. Everything in this movie has stood the test of time with every detail to the memorable red leather jacket, white t-shirt, and jeans. Natalie, James, and Sal did some of their best work in this movie. My first movie for all three to see and I loved it. A mix of drama and romance this is a perfect movie. Director Nicholas Ray did an amazing job, pulling every ounce of emotion from each actor in this movie. Just amaizng and a classic.
