Welcome to Where Everyone Has Gone Before, the column in which I continue my film education before your very eyes by seeking out and watching all of the movies I should have seen by now. I will first judge the movie before I've watched it, based entirely on its reputation (and my potentially misguided thoughts). Then I will give the movie a fair chance and actually watch it. You will laugh at me, you may condemn me, but you will never say I didn't try!

The Film: 'Rebel Without a Cause' (1955), Dir. Nicholas Ray

Starring: James Dean, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo, Jim Backus and Ann Doran.

Why I Haven't Seen It Until Now:
Because the overwhelming combination of sex and cool that is James Dean makes me ashamed to call myself a man? Because it's such an iconic film that I feel like I've seen it before even though I haven't? You got me. I don't have any good excuses this week.
