James Dean's most famous film!

9 years, 6 months ago at Jan 25 4:36
This is an absolutely brilliant film that is a classic even more in the modern days where people would mostly watch it for James Dean. It is a really fun story that is a classic film for everybody. It is quite funny in a dark way, filled with drama, beautiful romance and even thrilling suspense in some scenes. To me, it feels like a teen film because the story is about a badass teenager.

A classic

To be honest, I find it rather difficult to judge this movie because there is James Dean in it and everyone tends to overly praise his movies. I mean, by now, I have seen all 3 movies starring James Dean (see also ‘Giant’ and ‘East of Eden’)  but, to be honest, I find it really weird that the guy became such a legend just after showing up in 3 movies. After watching this flick, I thought ... read more

Brilliant cast of well-known Hollywood icons in hard-hitting treatment of story that focuses on the hopelessness exhibited by many middle-class teenagers who were too young to recall the pains of WWII, but saw daily reminders of the threat of "the bomb", as well as inequities around them.

Jim Stark is the new kid in town. He has been in trouble elsewhere; that's why his family has had to move before. Here he hopes to find the love he doesn't get from his middle-class family. Though he finds some of this in his relation with Judy, and a form of it in both Plato's adulation and Ray's real concern for him, Jim must still prove himself to his peers in switchblade knife fights and "chickie" games in which cars race toward a seaside cliff.

“Brilliant cast of well-known Hollywood icons in hard-hitting treatment of story that focuses on the hopelessness exhibited by many middle-class teenagers who were too young to recall the pains of WWII, but saw daily reminders of the threat of "the bomb", as well as inequities around them.

James Dean stands out as the troubled kid whose parents keep "moving" to escape their community's effects of their son's strange behavior. Equally great are the performances of Natalie Wood as a "wanna-be-bad-girl" who is hurt by her parents' implications that she is a "tramp"; and the child-like Sal Mineo, who lives in a mansion with a maid, but feels the pains of neglect from never-present parents.” read more

" Well, then, there, now...I'd never seen a James Dean flick. This one's my first. Wow. I get it, now. The man is so easy to watch. This was much more of a drama than I'm usually drawn to, but I guess morbid curiosity got the better of me. I just kind of hung on his every word. Natalie Wood was pretty great, too. But, man...he just delivers his lines so damn flawlessly. It's not even like he's playing the character-he IS the character and you're getting a peek at his life. Excuse me wh"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"Despite only having appeared in three starring roles in his tragically short career, James Dean was and remains one of the most fascinating and iconic movie stars of all time. Nicholas Ray's influential teen drama 'Rebel Without a Cause' is his most famous and celebrated film and yet it is the only one of the three for which Dean was not Oscar-nominated. This certainly has nothing to do with the quality of the performance, which is hauntingly powerful in its depiction of a young man's confusion"
