backtrack; Rebel without a cause (1955)

Even if you’re middle-class, adolescence equals alienation, confusion, and vulnerability. And there’s not much help to get from the grown-ups. Common knowledge today maybe, but this generation gap weltschmerz bonanza was most probably groundbreaking and revelatory back then.

Both weak and strong, just like its characters. In my book of failed masculinity and torn, melodramatic youth.
