On the Waterfront


Dir: Elia Kazan


Being a new member of a union, and with the troubles of labor this last summer (union split, NW airlines, steroids) I thought quite a bit about the labor movement this time around. If one was to make a union picture today, what would it look like? Cesar Chavez, immigrant labor I reckon. The Grapes of Wrath but with foreign nationals.

Someone please make that movie.

Or it could be a bunch of whiney ball players. Like The Natural with no heart.

PS I like the BME assignment.
