Makes me wanna wear a tux more often. Sporting a tux brings out something unexpected in a night, which is why it’s a tradition that sticks.

Mickey Rourke as Motorcycle Boy, from Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 adaptation of S.E. Hinton’s Rumble Fish.
Of the film, Janet Maslin had the following to say in her October 7, 1983 review for The New York Times:
 
Adapting another of S. E. Hinton’s novels, Mr. Coppola has sought to imbue a story about tough teen-agers with the rhapsodic passion of opera, the sharp contrasts of German Expressionism, the angst of existentialism and the imagery of Dada. That he can accomplish part of this is a measure of this director’s still-enormous talent. That he would choose to is a sign of how very paradoxical, even aimless, Mr. Coppola’s work has become.
