Rumble Fish is like a unisex Sweet 16 gift for children whose favorite hangouts are the pool hall, the Cinématheque Française, and the rings of Saturn.

If Rumble Fish fails as a traditional movie about real people, it is beguiling as an exercise in hallucinatory style.

A bit too over-stylized to allow for any great involvement, the most interesting part of this is spotting the young actors before they became stars -- most notably nephew-of-the-director Nicolas Cage.

A seminal work in teen films, shot appropriately in B/W (except for the fish).

The chiaroscuro lighting and shadows are admittedly handsome, but there just isn't enough to keep Rumble Fish afloat in the story department. There's a lot of talking and existential ruminating, but very little forward movement.
