Rebel Without a Cause


Dir. Nicholas Ray. 1955, 111 mins. 35mm. With James Dean, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo, Jim Backus, Ann Doran, Dennis Hopper. “You’re tearing me apart,” cries 1950s icon James Dean in his definitive movie, released a month after his death. Dean’s Jim Stark expresses the turmoil that bubbles beneath the surface of a placid community in Nicholas Ray’s charged Freudian melodrama.
