A Streetcar Named Desire
Drama • PG • 1951 • 2 hr 5 min
Great film that only suffers from the omission of Blanche discovering her husband having gay sex. The change to him just being weak is silly
A classic film that’s still brilliant today, powerful story. Superb performances but Brando and Leigh are incredible, groundbreaking acting!
You can see what’s coming and can’t do anything to stop it. Heartbreaking film.
One of the greatest performances of all time. Made Brando my favorite actor.
Boy, this is both a dark and modern film for 1951. Still holds up by many of today’s standards. Amazing performances all around. A must-see.
Vivian Leigh at the height of her powers. Moving look at a privileged, dreamy woman trying to survive a violent society
A good adaptation. And Marlon at his finest. Both his looks and acting. Spectacular
Perfectly captures Tennessee Williams' play. A dark and dramatic piece, perfectly framed in the setting of the time and circumstances.
This is an actor’s film, but luckily, when you have Marlon Brando, you can accomplish it in spades.
It’s been so long I hardly remember. Stellllllllllaaaaa… that’s all I got.
