The Top Ten

1
The Godfather
this movie set the benchmark for all the other movies to come... which till now has not been achieved...

marlon brando is excellent here playing the role better than any other actor could have..
There's no words to express my feelings for this movie. Every time I see it I don't know if I want to laugh or cry! All I can is "watch it, " and you won't regret it!
In films very few actors would have reached that level of perfomance with such ease and so much of control. Even the great robert de niro (young) couldn't quite match the aura he created.

2A Streetcar Named Desire
MARLON BRANDO is freaking awesome actor. Love him in most of his movies. I was actually hesitating on whether to pick this one or On the Waterfront. But finally decided that he is absolutely hilarious in ASNS. Breathtaking performance... Hey Stella!
Masterpiece. 'The Godfather' can't give to the viewer the depth, the sensitivity and the powerful quality 'A Street Named Desire' offers. I wonder why so many people get impressed by gangster movies. How come and they talk to their lives? Are we serious now?
in my opinion his greatest performance, better than the godfather. It's the movie that made brando a star. it's the performance that inspired everyone who came after him!

3Apocalypse Now
The surreal take on war is brilliant and haunting, Sheen and Brando's performances made the film way better than it already was

4On the Waterfront
This is the second greatest performance made by Marlon Brando and only edged out to the Godfather. Which was the greatest movie of all time
Phenomenal movie that truly stands the test of time. The movie is as applicable today as when it was made.
perfect story perfect actors and actress

5Last Tango in Paris
This is Brando's finest performance, in my opinion. I like 'The Godfather' better as a film, but this film captures Brando's darkest two hours in a movie. The scene in the end where he is talking to his dead wife was mostly improvised... THAT IS INSANE!
Compelling, tragic and thought provoking. gutsy roll

6The Wild One
The wild One is a landmark in many ways, it was one of the most important movies for a new generation of youngsters in the 1950s, his style waring raw denim jeans, white tee and a biker jacket is most probably the most iconic look in pop culture. His rebellious performance as the motorcycle gang-leader in "the wild one" is the reason for the modern cowboy, the outsider witch find his freedom riding the highways across USA, and his peers establishing motorcycle clubs such as Hells angeles and Bandidos. Not only a top actor performance but creating one of the iconic looks of todays rebellious youth.
One of his best acting with young vision and charismatic identity as a gang leader. His most of the up-coming performances more mature but expressing weak attention.
Best movie ever! I think he portrays the best personality for this character. I love Marlon Brando.
