Marlon Brando didn't win an Oscar for this... hmm. So much for most iconic role of all time.
What's so fascinating about some of the characters, is how realistic they actually are. Blanche is a belle past her prime, clinging on to semi-expensive clothes and her reputation to mask her alcoholism and make her feel better about herself.
Yes, I'll admit that she got on my nerves sometimes, but she was supposed to. Her character is a brilliant psychological mess and Vivien Leigh is fantastic in her role… Even if I wanted her to leave by the end of the film.
Stanley and Stella are an ordinary couple, who fight about things that reflect any normal couple. Expenses, house guests, appearances, forgiveness. Great writing slips into great characters.
And so the dominating role of all three …

Highly acclaimed drama with top notch performances. Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) is the sister of Stanley Kowalski's (Marlon Brando) wife Stella Kowalski (Kim Hunter). Starts of slow but begins to be engaging after 30min. or so when the characters show their real colors. The pace was somewhat sluggish though the soundtrack wonderful and recognized by the Academy awards. Settings were well picked and support were believable. Screenplay was descent though the characters not that likable. Kim Hunter seems to be the oddball becasue of the tremendous efforts from Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh. On the positives, Brando was astoundingly convincing while Leigh authentic as crazy alcoholic who lies. A Streetcar Named Desire maybe highly praised, for this critic it was an average drama …
