"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

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2018) (746 movies items)

" Notes: Even though Marlon 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 semi"

"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.
