[Review] 88/100 On The Waterfront is a strong character film, with much film-historical relevance and classicism, which explains its current reputation and social reverence...Marlon Brando and Eva Marie Saint give career best performances, and their chemistry is palpable in each and every scene...On The Waterfront serves as prototypical rather than stereotypical
88/100 – Excellent. (4.5)
At more than 50 years old,this Classic is still riveting,with superb performances and gorgeous cinematography.Then,there is the brilliant direction and a script that is a character study,which focuses on the plight of workers having to live with corruption.
One of my favourite films of all times.
You don't understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it. It was you, Charley
