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.
