"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

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

New York movies:The 100 best films set in New York (100 movies items)

"The greater NYC skyline lingers in the backdrop like an unreachable dream in Elia Kazan’s bruising corruption drama, based on Malcolm Johnson’s articles for the late New York Sun. The Hoboken docks are so tough that, as one character says, they almost “ain’t part of America,” but are their own seemingly unchangeable kingdom. —Alison Willmore"

A great classic

“Even though Brando’s career has always been rather inconsistent, I have always been a huge fan of the guy and since this flick is considered as one of his classics, I was quite eager to check it out. Man, at the time, he was really on fire and gave one of his best performances, arguably one of the best performances ever given by an actor. Personally, I still prefer ‘A Streetcar named Desire’ but this flick is definitely not far behind. Anyway, 3 years after making this seminal classic, Elia Kazan was working again with Marlon Brando and the end-result was once again quite impressive. Basically, contrary to most of the movies produced Hollywood at the time and still nowadays, the main character was not some kind of almighty hero but an average man who was deeply flawed.

The Best Movies Ever, chosen by 94 actors (110 movies items)

" Quote: It was that basic human story, it was watching the fluid way in which Marlon directed the wind around him. We were all moved and swayed by him, and it was the first time that I took notice of truth in acting. There was no acting; everyone else acted around him, but he was there. (Terrence Howard) Points: 8 Chosen by: Mickey Rourke (2), Terrence Howard (4), John Krasinski (2)"
