"Hey, you wanna hear my philosophy of life? Do it to him before he does it to you."

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

"25.5. Marlon Brando joutuu tiukoille, koska satamassa ei töitä kaikille. Voihan tämän nähdä jonkinlaisena kannanottona työttömyyttä ja Sipilän hallitusta kohtaan."

"14/1/17 Classic 50's drama that still manages to be as powerful now as it was back then. Marlon Brando is on fire as the former boxer now working on the docks and caught up with unions and the mob. With strong support, this is one of those must-see movies that you really must see."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2015 (34 movies items)

" Crackle- 1hr. 47min. First Viewing A strong film carried by it's authentic emotion and an excellent performance from Brando. Note: My experience may have been dulled by Crackle's obtrusive commercial breaks, which happened about every five or so minutes, then would cut out and last about five minutes."
