To Do: Blackface, Soul and The Police

Friday


* Must-see 1983 Coppola film Rumble Fish at AFI. " Matt Dillon is a wanna-be hoodlum who idolizes his brother, former gang leader Mickey Rourke. Dennis Hopper is their wayward father who can't shake the bottle. Daringly shot in b&w, with splashes of color. Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Christopher Penn and Nicholas Cage shine in supporting roles, while The Police's Stewart Copeland contributed the film's memorable score." [AFI]
