I didn’t intent to review this movie – I was going to watch it only for self-education, for my own pleasure. But after seeing it I’ve suddenly changed my mind.  ‘Bartleby’ is a fair movie with wacky characters, colourful humour and original soundtrack. To be honest, this film slapped me across the face.

I had read about this film in a newspaper and I decided it is worth watching, no matter how old the film is. Really, why do we have to watch only new stuff? I have a minor passion for 50s, that’s why it was f*cking awesome to enjoy atmosphere that lingers in the film-air. Is Rebel Without A Cause going to be interesting for a man of mould? Sure! Especially for a teen or his parents – these are the main problems the movie.
