Rumble Fish, a companion piece to The Outsiders, both written by SE Hinton and both by Francis Ford Coppola.

Rumble Fish stars Matt Dillon and Mickey Rourke playing two brothers trying to connect in a world of hurt both physical and emotional

One of the Coppola’s most overtly stylised works, Rumble Fish uses its breathtaking black and white, Koyanisqaatsi-inspired time-lapse photography and propulsive original score by The Police’s Stewart Copland to evoke a dream world of alienated youth.

A beautiful postmodern art film, Rumble Fish is wonderfully uncertain of its time and place, stranding glittering icons of Fifties Americana - pool halls, flickering neon signs - within an Eighties post-industrial wasteland.

The stylistic bricolage shapes the performances too, with Matt Dillon channeling Method Acting as a young man infatuated with the enigma of his self-absorbed brother, played with whispering intensity by a Marcel Camus-meets-Marlon Brando modelled Mickey Rourke.

The late Dennis Hopper makes a poignant appearance as the absent even when present father who proves that the centre inevitably cannot hold.

Incredible cast includes Dennis Hopper, Chris Penn, Laurence Fishburne, Tom Waits, Nicolas Cage , Sofia Coppola.
