About Rebel Without a Cause

Year Released:

Critics often cite this domestic melodrama as one of Ray’s greatest achievements, and it stands as his most popular and well-known film to date. Famous in large part for James Dean’s iconic starring role, it demonstrates Ray’s masterful techniques with his actors (and his investment in “The Method”), as well as his almost hallucinatory use of color and CinemaScope. Dean plays Jim Stark, a suburban teenage delinquent searching to find his place within his family at home and among his troubled peers in high school. (35mm presentation)
