Overwrought and overthought.

Coppola's recent viewing seems to have been German silent films of the '20s, so he has decided to coat the whole enterprise in a startling Expressionist style, which is very arresting but hardly appropriate to the matter in hand.

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

A number of the images in Rumble Fish are more memorable than the film is as a whole, sometimes for the wrong reasons.

This is a movie you are likely to hate, unless you can love it for its crazy, feverish charm.

A bit too over-stylised 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.
