A Streetcar Named Desire

Elia Kazan USA, 1951

T. J. Harman's rating of the film Endstation Sehnsucht

I recently got to see this on the big screen after not having seen it in years. The film is a lot funnier than I remembered, whereas I'd only "got" the sadness of the story. The objectification of Brando & the subject matter were groundbreaking but a scene I found amazing that noone talks: Kim Hunter in her bed sheets talking to Leigh, post-STELLA! makeup sex..looking like a woman whose just had sex in a 1951 film!
