Rumble Fish was a difficult shoot. We had very long hours and uncomfortable conditions - Oklahoma is very hot in the summer and we worked mostly all nights.
Once again, the performances are amazing - Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, Dennis Hopper are outstanding. And Francis Coppola really understood the book, but stayed true to his own vision. It is his movie.
Rumble Fish is a very strange movie (R-Rated!) and people love it or hate it.
I love it.
