>Rumble Fish is an American 1983 drama film
directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
Beyond The Siamese Fighters :
It is based on the novel Rumble Fish by S.E. Hinton,
who also co-wrote the screenplay.
The film centers on the relationship between Motorcycle Boy (Mickey Rourke),
a revered former gang leader wishing to live a more peaceful life,
and his younger brother, Rusty James (Matt Dillon),
a teenaged hoodlum who aspires to become as feared as Motorcycle Boy.
The film’s marketing tagline was,
“Rusty James can’t live up to his brother’s reputation.
His brother can’t live it down.”
Set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the film begins in a diner called Bennys Billiards, where local tough guy Rusty James is told by Midgit that rival group leader Biff Wilcox wants to meet him that night in an abandoned garage lot for a fight. Accepting the challenge, Rusty James then talks with his friends — the wily Smokey, loyal B.J., and nerdy Steve – who all have a different take on the forthcoming fight. Steve mentions that Rusty James’ older brother, “The Motorcycle Boy,” would not be pleased with the fight as he had previously created a truce forbidding gang fights, or “rumbles.” Rusty James dismisses him, saying that Motorcycle Boy (whose real name is never revealed) has been gone for two months, leaving without explanation or promise of return.
