Fifty-minute documentary taking a look at various "rebel" films from the 1950s, which changed the culture as well as changed how films were made. Lee Grant, John Carpenter, Roger Corman, Paul Mazursky and critic Molly Haskell are interviewed about a small group of films that include Anatomy of a Murder, The Thing from Another World, The Wild One and Rebel Without a Cause. If you've never seen any of these films then I'm guessing you'll enjoy this film more since you're probably getting introduced to some great films. If you have seen these films then you're not really going to hear anything you haven't heard in countless other documentaries. We get to hear how great brando is and how Dean changed any entire generation. There are a couple good stories told when the directors get to talk about their first memories of going to the movies but outside of that this film doesn't offer too much.
