James Dean's most famous film!

11 years, 9 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 thought it was rather difficult to judge this movie because there is James Dean in it and, in my opinion, everyone tend 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 think it is really weird that the guy became such a legend just after showing up in 3 movies. Anyway, aft... 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.

James Dean stands out as the troubled kid whose parents keep "moving" to escape their community's... read more

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.

"“I think this is the ultimate in teenage film. Nichols Ray captures the essence of what it’s like to be a teenager…. It completely holds up; it’s an incredibly sexy ride…. It taps into something real and tumultuous with family.” - Drew Barrymore “It’s an essential film because of James Dean being in it. He only made three feature-length films, and it explains what James Dean was all about…. Also you get this great chance to see Dennis Hopper as a kid, Corey Allen, Natalie Wood"

“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
