Charles Gillibert to introduce.
Another case of acute sibling worship, Rumble Fish finds misfit Rusty James (Matt Dillon) looking way up to his older brother, the revered former gang leader and local star Motorcycle Boy (Mickey Rourke), now a lonely and depressed man. Inspired by his own admiration for his brother August, Coppola gives us, with stunning black-and-white cinematography and an innovative score by Stewart Copeland, the wrenching story of a man who experiences a brief moment of success before fading into obscurity.
