    Overly melodramatic but with some nice visuals from Coppola. I can see why this was so popular upon release.

    Despite some good performances, The Outsiders doesn't have much to recommend outside of nostalgia.

    Pretty sure I saw this before, in the auditorium at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland during a creative writing summer camp.


    That burning beam effects shot was pretty bitchin', though.

    It seems like this is Coppola's American Graffiti, but with knives and burning churches. All things considered, I'll take Lucas’ version of the 50s.

    I wish more teen movies were made with this kind of exaggerated formal melodrama.

    Haiku Review:
    Young adult story
    better left for young adults;
    No subtlety here.

    Watched this a long time ago after I read the book in middle school. It's not the best book adaptation ever, but they did a pretty good job with it (the book is still better).

    Highlights what makes Rumble Fish work so remarkably well, namely the lyricism and abstract bits. This is too straightforward and plot-heavy for its own good, with not a whole lot keeping it together on a scene-by-scene basis. Johnny breaks the heart.

    Quick thoughts:

    Was it just me or was the acting here just atrocious? I'd only seen this one other time and that's when we watched it in school. I wish I could go back in time and concentrate on the teacher's face when Matt Dillon asks Diane Lane if the drapes match the carpet - had to be a cringe worthy moment for them. Anyway, I liked it much better then, but then who didn't love a movie in school. Hell, they could've showed us Mr. Woodcock in school and I'd have been comparing it to Hitchcock stuff. Thumbs down and one of Coppola's worst.
