On the Waterfront vs. Schindler’s List – Best vs. the Best

We are taking a spin on my Top 100 Films of All Time list. To make it more interesting and exciting we are going to start pitting each film against each other until a winner is chosen. Without further ado, let’s start.

Category I – Art Direction

On The Waterfront is about an ex-boxer, Terry Malloy who witnesses a death of his good friend and in return decides to revolt against the mob boss responsible. Quite the simple story and overall never adds too much of anything else other than a typical love interest. The camera work makes the movie seem newer than the ’50s. That is a true testament to how well it has aged. There were hiccups along the way. It’s a movie which goes on for longer than needed. I surely didn’t think it was pushed to its potential.
