Ep. 34 – “Rumble Fish” (1983)

Mark, Chad and guest Steve Phelan return after a week off to explore Steve’s pick, “Rumble Fish”, Francis Ford Coppola’s generally forgotten art-house epic(?) from 1983.  Photographed on gorgeously lush black and white film, “Rumble Fish” is a film that most likely couldn’t see the light of day in our era or filmmaking – a large cast of up-and-coming stars, including Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, Diane Lane and Nicolas Cage, would frankly be unheard-of in a modern independent shot on black and white film (or video, for that matter).  It’s a relic of its time, for sure.
