American Classic for Teens and Adults

"They're tearing me apart." I love this movie. I am of the honest opinion that this movie will just give kids goofy and unneccessary ideas about how to relate to their parents. Nothing really damaging about it. The parents aren't respected and the kids drag race and smoke, but honestly do you really need to give your kids more ideas about being or overly dramatic?

James Dean became an American icon because of this, and it is easy to see why.

good 1950's flick. days before the internet and cellphones.

The days before the internet and cellphones there was James Dean in a 50's classic Rebel Without A Cause. ''Your tearing me apart"! he shouts . good 1950's drama. a movie before my time. I like James Dean. I wish I grew up in the fifties . that would be nice.

Honestly anything with James Dean is automatically good.

It's strange how a film from the 50s still relates to today's youth and adolescence so perfectly. It's a gritty, sad and touching film. 4/5. Good ole James dean.
