"...offbeat, daring, and utterly original." ROGER EBERT
"If THE OUTSIDERS was a GODFATHER for teens, RUMBLE FISH was APOCALYPSE NOW. Filmed in dreamy black-and-white with an occasional dab of color, RUMBLE FISH is an unabashed art film. Deliriously expressionistic visually and aurally, it owes at least as much to the work of Jean Cocteau, Kenneth Anger, and F.W. Murnau as to the juvenile delinquent sagas of the 1950s." TV GUIDE
"A triumph of romantic impulse over stylistic indulgence." BOSTON GLOBE
"If Rumble Fish fails as a traditional movie about real people, it is beguiling as an exercise in hallucinatory style." TIME
