On the Waterfront is a classic film that tells a remarkable tale of one man's struggle with his conscience and the union bosses that he works for.

The film is brutal, gripping, hard-hitting and categorically astonishing. It's just such a monumental shame that this film (along with a m... read more

My first viewing of this masterpiece. Acted to perfection by every damn cast member. From the second the film started I was hooked, fully engrossed in the story. Marlon Brando is amazing as Terry Malloy, the former boxer, determined to put an end to the bullying and murder at the waterfront and along the way falls in love with Eide (brilliantly portrayed by Eva Marie Saint), a young woman whose br... read more

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"Although it is sometimes reviled in liberal circles as being director Elia Kazan's attempt to justify his naming of names during the McCarthy Communist witch hunts, 'On the Waterfront' is undoubtedly a masterpiece. Though it fails to convince in the allegorical sense it was reportedly meant to be taken, as a broader tale of one man's struggle against dockyard bullies is easily applicable to a range of different audiences who can choose to project their own figureheads of evil onto the villains.
