  1. I've been wanting to see Rebel Without a Cause again and can't think of a better director to start my classic film binge with that Nicholas Ray. My knowledge of movies pre-1973 is woeful, so this article was an education. Thanks, Tommy!

  2. This movie really is phenomenal. Bogart's performance is just electric: that scene where he describes how the murder could have happened, and Ray casts his face in an eerie light, is unforgettable. And despite these lurid touches, you're right that it's also a very subtle movie, and a poetic one as well — those lines you quote at the beginning of the review are truly haunting.
