"You're Tearing Me Apart!"

Movie: Rebel Without A Cause (1955)
Setting: L.A.; contemporary
Iconic movie of teen angst and 50's juvenile delinquency. The kids are troubled but wise, the parents dysfunctional. Notable performances for Jim Backus and Sal Mineo. Also Natalie Wood was hot. There is much in this film to be analysed, but I think I'll pass on the amature sociology and psychology tonight. Let's just say this is one of the essentials, and you should probably see it. Now that I've seen all three of James Deans staring films, I still like Giant (1956) the best.
