"Marlon Brando as Terry Malloy "Director Elia Kazan described Terry Malloy as "the dumb, innocent kid who's done terrible things and wants to be redeemed." Whatever personal echoes the characterization might have had for Kazan, Brando makes the affable young bruiser's crusade something even deeper. His evolution from callow pawn to stoic iconoclast in that final, bloody stumble on the docks is all the more momentous because of the many shades the actor gave it: By turns playful, yearning, defiant"

" ''You don't understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it. It was you, Charley.'' On The Waterfront tells the captivating story of Terry Malloy previously an Ex-Fighter and now currently doing errands for Johnny Friendly.

TIME's 100 Greatest Movies (100 movies items)

""Brando gives his greatest performance as a young longshoreman who comes to political consciousness and helps oust a corrupt, mob-controlled union from the docks. That theme is now a little dated, but the yearning love affair between Brando's roughneck and Eva Marie Saint's hesitant convent girl is as fresh and poignant as it was a half-century ago, when TIME dismissed Kazan’s powerfully realistic film as no more than "a shrewd piece of screen journalism."—R.S.""

"On the Waterfront (Elia Kazan, 1954) "


PvtCaboose91 posted a review 7 years, 4 months ago

Gripping drama.

“"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 majority of classics) is so criminally overlooked during the time of modern cinema.

Marlon Brando, in one of his early performances, is an ex-boxer named Terry Malloy. Terry now works at the docks for a group of corrupt union bosses. But when a worker attempts to tell the authorities of the corruption that is occurring at the docks, the bosses send a clear message and have him eliminated. The dead” read more
