On the Waterfront (1954)

Director Elia Kazan’s supposed explanation for his actions (naming names for the House of UnAmerican Activities), On the Waterfront has a script and actors that feel like they wouldn’t even need a director. But oh what a director they have. ‘I coulda been a contender’- that speech alone is worth price of admission. Rank it up there with ‘And then your enemies would be my enemies’ as Don Corleone.
