Just finished watching "Rebel Without a Cause".
The dialogue was meandering and incomprehensible, and there was not a single likeable character in the film.
And James Dean's "incredible" performance appeared to consist largely of the sort of slow flopping on the ground that I generally associate with with weak, gasping, land-bound fish in their last 30 seconds of life.
What a downer.
Even Jim Backus in a flowery apron didn't cheer me up.
