Hossein's Review of On the Waterfront
On the Waterfront(1954)
Feb 2011 - I am sure at the time this was view more than anything within the political atmosphere of the time and the unpleasant role that Kazan had played. That wil always remains with this movie but the personal journey taken by Terry is what overshadows that. Brando's acting is a classic and his lines, his character and his final walk are unforgettable. I was not so fond of the cliche portrayal of their love, Eva Mari Saint's acting and the abuse of the background music which I suppose was customary at the time.
