On the Waterfront

Dir: Elia Kazan
Starring: Marlon Brando
Rating: Top Work

Kazan taught Brando to act, or so he claims. On the Waterfront is all about Brando - it's pretty much a one man show, although the Union boss tries to get some of the limelight.

It's a gritty tale, as all films set at ports are. The struggle between worker and authority. Brando plays the thug who changes his ways.

Interesting, captivating, but not massively enjoyable.
