Movie Reviews

One of the best double packs around
David P. Collins | 01/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unlike a lot of other bundles around, this one is actually worthwhile. Say what you like about Brando, but there was a time when he was doing something with acting that has rarely been seen since. I believe the reason Brando was so good in those early years was because he was just so excited by the possibilities and of his own talent. But the problem with genius is it soon gets bored..

Regardless, On The Waterfront is brilliant - mostly due to Brando, but also his co-stars. It's such a shame Brando couldn't get past his ego and not sit with Steiger for Steiger's closeups in their famous car scene - because Steiger's role and character's story is as important as Brando's.

The Wild One is a lovely snap-shot of 'middle' America caught in the grip of hysteria about youth that has happened again and again throughout history. This time it's those crazed potheads and drunks riding their motorcycles, refusing to call people "Sir", and questioning authority. Forgot about Brando's reply of "Whaddya got?", look for the moments where he shows fragility - there's the magic. Not in the same class as Streetcar or Waterfront - but along with those two it forms a tight trilogy of films that should be in every collection."
