“You can sense an energy trying to break through, emotions unexamined but urgent …. [l]ike its hero, Rebel Without a Cause desperately wants to say something and doesn’t know what it is. If it did know, it would lose its fascination. More perhaps than it realized, it is a subversive document of its time.” Roger Ebert
