Brando in his spectacular role as the dashing and brutal Stanley KowalskiBy Irfan Lamba from England, Reading , 02 Dec 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Marlon Brando sets the standards for future actors in his role as Stanley Kowalski. Although there have been many more film adaptations after this one, no other actor has been able to match, or even come close to Brando's performance in this masterpiece directed by Elia Kazan.
What I mainly love about this film is Brando's peformance. He is amazing. His ability to superb ability to improvise is clearly evident and is part of what makes this film so great.
Vivien Leigh is also magnificent in her Oscar Winning Performance as Blance Dubois. This film is well worth watching and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic Old School FilmBy a customer from Wales , 07 Jan 2010They just don't make them like this any more!! Brilliant plot, brilliant actors with the fabulous vivien Leigh on top form and Brando was marvelous as ever.
I loved this film and would recommend it to all Viven Leigh fans, you forget about Scarlet O'Hara when you see her in this role as her acting skills really come across.
Simply wonderful film!!
A lost opportunityBy Zamy (552 reviews) from London , 02 Mar 2009Re-viewing this film after a long gap I have to say that it does not really impress. Mainly this is down to director Kazan who waters down the best bits of Williams plot and dialogue. Even worse he presides over a clearly mismatched 'method' performance from Marlon Brando and a cringe inducing mannered theatrical performance from Vivien Leigh. Still worth watching for Brando - just.
excellentBy a customer from Birkenhead , 29 Jan 2009excellent sunday afternoon film, great performance from Brando, good story, also funny with being an older film the things they said and did!!! Well worth a watch if you like old genre films.
Where are the songs!By a customer from Edinburgh , 18 Jan 2009Damn you Simpsons! The whole way through this I couldn't stop thinking about Streetcar: The Musical. When Steve the paper boy came collecting but didn't use the word 'losee' - I was a bit disappointed. Still, it gave me even more respect for that classic episode. Anyway - in terms of a real critique this movie was pretty darn good. Everything looked classic in its brooding black and white and Vivien Leigh and Marlon Brando were both excellent in that 50's-cinema overacting kind of way. What else is there to say. Another classic which does indeed live up to its rep.
Streetcar Named DesireBy a customer from Liverpool , 09 Dec 2008Marlon Brando is a real actor. The acting is superb, the passion relentless.
A classic. Hot......
