The American dream in "Rebel..." and in real life today, is unfettered acquisition of objects and money, with no soul or character. That's what the kids are rebelling against. I wish more kids today would rebel against soulless America with its greed and avarice.

It was kind of weird. The atmosphere and the charactors in the movie were unlike any I have ever seen. It had an odd feeling and the story line was kind of really unlikly. I dont think I liked it all at. Just not right. You know?
James Dean...the son of Mr. Howell?? No wonder the boy had trouble respecting dear-old-dad. This movie broke down obstacles of teen life and laid them to waste. Natalie Wood, Dean and Sal Mineo....all tragically lost to us. A great part by future star, Dennis Hopper. This movie should not be missed...teen angst at it's best.
