A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE (1951)
A legendary film with a performance from Brando that still astonishes. He was like some unreal and sexual alien that burst onscreen. There was nobody else like him. Naturally, the writing is pitch-perfect and Vivian Leigh more than holds her own next to the beast of a genius that is Brando. Needless to say, the story is a masterpiece.
Director: Elia Kazan
