Marlon Brando RIP
List creator: ALittlefield
Created on: July 5, 2004 - 12:34 PM PDT
Description: Brando was wildly uneven and difficult to work with right up until the end (Just ask Frank Oz, who directed him in THE SCORE and lived to regret it.) Still, his influence was (is) huge. (JULIUS CAESAR and BURN are also good and not available on DVD yet.)

average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
The Men (1950)
Not Rated
  His cinematic debut is a moving, well made drama about a crippled WWII vet trying to adjust.
A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
  The role that made him a legend on the stage is recreated expertly by director Elia Kazan(who directed him on stage, too)
On the Waterfront (1954)
Not Rated
  Working again with Kazan got Brando his first Oscar. The "coulda been a contender" speech is famous deservedly.
The Wild One (1954)
Not Rated
  Not as shocking as it may have been in the 50's, but Brando's biker leader is still iconic.
The Godfather (1972)
  With heavy makeup and cotton in his cheeks to look older, Brando brought a regal air to this classic mobster. He recieved his second Oscar for the role.
Last Tango in Paris (1972)
  My personal favorite performance by him; as a middleaged man in a erotic relationship with a young woman, he is nothing short of mesmerizing.
Apocalypse Now (1979)
  This is a tricky one..I love the movie, but I'm not sure about his performance; his mumbling is at times incoherent, but some of his speeches are terrific.
The Freshman (1990)
  His last great role; not only does he parody his Godfather performance, but he also creates a character who is both menacing, charming and cuddly at the same time.
