Now, thanks to a recent re-edited edition, the focus turns towards Brando and his relationship with the other characters besides Leigh's. His treatment towards his wife (Kim Hunter) and his buddy (Karl Malden) offer some truly harrowing moments. But the final segments involving Brando's attack on Leigh still astound and anger after all this time. Brando, Leigh, Malden and Hunter give spellbinding performances (all but Brando won Oscars for their roles) and Elia Kazan's relentless direction of the proceedings come off magnificently. The moody black-and-white cinematography by Harry Stradling is perfect for the atmosphere of Williams' depressing world. You should definitely see this movie! Mainly because it was the movie that introduced Brando, an actor who gave a voice ("STELLLLLAAAA!!") to a whole new generation of actors and to the ones that came afterward.
