On the Waterfront

  • 4 stars
  • 1954
  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Elia Kazan
  • Written by: Budd Schulberg
  • Cast: Marlon Brando, Rod Steiger, Lee J Cobb, Eva Marie Saint, Karl Malden

Taking on gangster supremo Lee J Cobb only leads to tragedy for Brando's ex-boxer Terry Malloy in this early masterpiece of the Method school. Despite over-obvious religious symbolism, Budd Schulberg's politically contentious script and Kazan's involved direction, this offers one of Brando's best screen performances and…

  • UK release: 26 June 2015

In the Wild West, young Scottish nobleman Jay (Smit-McPhee) and his hired gun Silas (Fassbender) are on the trail of Rose (Pistorius), the object of Jay's affection. Witty, astonishingly accomplished debut by Maclean, even if it's too irreverent to be instantly iconic or truly heartbreaking.

In the late 1930s, vivacious nun Maria (Andrews) introduces the Von Trapp children to the joys of music, and their widowed father (Plummer) to the joys of love as Nazism begins to sweep Austria. One of the great screen musicals, completely uncynical, and boasting a host of memorable songs and charm-sodden moments. And…
