"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

"“Brando makes choices in his performance that are the best…ever made on screen in their subtleties and internalizations…. I don’t think there’s a better example of chemistry in cinema history than Eva Marie Saint and Marlon Brando in this movie…, where he puts her glove on…or the kiss that they share in the apartment.” -Drew Barrymore “I don’t think anybody in film ever portrayed angst, confusion, and torment more honestly, without grandstanding, than Marlon Brando.

Personally, I still prefer ‘A Streetcar named Desire’ but this flick is definitely not far behind. Anyway, 3 years after making this semi"
