Rebel Without a Cause vs. The 400 Blows



These are two of the most prolific coming-of-age films of the 1950s. Perhaps it's because I'm an American, but I find Rebel Without a Cause far more watchable than The 400 Blows. I don't know if it's the better film necessarily, but I definitely enjoy it more.

Yes two of the best dramas of the 50's but I never felt 400 Blows had a great story but the main kid in the film was incredible I felt such a connection and he was very relatable, Still REBEL always has me hooked and James Dean was amazing in it such an iconic slice of Americana of the time!

I love James Dean but 400 Blows was a better film than Rebel Without a Cause.
