Jake’s review published on Letterboxd:
RUMBLE FISH 072620 on Peacock:
heavily layered. the performative Rusty James. the Motorcycle Boy reigns. lost adolescence. out of sight, dead to me.
"you know, i stopped being a kid when i was five."
"yeah? i wonder when i'm gonna stop being a little kid."
it's distilled chaos. energized by fluid movement, flashes of color and light, tight pacing, and surrealist undertones. to the tune of a snappy script and a beautiful score.
"but they belong... in the river. i don't think they would fight if they were in the river. if they had room to live."
the unceremonious destruction of a mythologized world.
