Best Marlon Brando Movies

The Top Ten
1 The Godfather

Number one on my list of best movies ever. I could watch this classic over and over and never get tired of seeing it. I read the book beforehand and seen the movie when it first came out in the theaters. Great acting by Brando, he portrayed an inspiring characterization of Don Corleone!

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.

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!

2 On the Waterfront

This is Marlon Brando at his best. You can feel the emotion that Brando puts into the role of Terry Melloy, and how he reacts to the world around him and tries to achieve redemption for the life he chose of corruption. With a doubt the greatest movie ever made, with beautiful contrast between black and white of the film, and with a superb cast, with the directorial of Elia Kazan. Not to be missed for all generations of film lovers. Marlon Brando changes the world of acting with this astonishing picture.

3 A Streetcar Named Desire

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?

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!

4 Apocalypse Now

How is this 6? Should be on the first place. Great movie, great soundtrack, great performances, brilliant and haunting

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

5 Last 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!

6 The Freshman
7 Julius Caesar

This is the very best movie version of Shakespeare's play.

Watch his speech in this movie.

8 The 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.

9 Superman

Best family-friendly movie so far.

The finesse laiden, yet powerful nuances of Brando's acting are on display as he owns the first 10-15 minutes of the best comic book movie ever made

10 Reflections In a Golden Eye
The Contenders
11 The Young Lions

Totally underrated in this film. Better than Streetcar, Godfather combined.

Best film by far. One of the best films of the Second World War

12 The Fugitive Kind
13 Christopher Columbus: The Discovery
14 Sayonara
15 Burn!
16 One-Eyed Jacks

This was a spaghetti western before there was such a thing as far as the story goes, way ahead of it's time! Shows yet again the versatility and vision and daring of Brando

17 A Countess from Hong Kong
18 Mutiny on the Bounty

Great from start to finish...Brando the greatest

One of best films of all time and brilliant performance by Marlon Brando

19 The Teahouse of the August Moon

Very funny movie I love it, and marlon was a genius, I like Japanese people and the movie is really good

20 The Chase
21 The Men
22 A Dry White Season
23 The Missouri Breaks

The Missouri Breaks was one of Jack Nicholson's early movies.

24 Superman II
25 Viva Zapata!
