Is "On the Waterfront" Really a McCarthyite Film?

[ 9:13 - from The L Magazine ]

Film critic Matt Zoller Seitz examines the political reputation of the 1954 classic "On the Waterfront". Long thought of as a defense of director Elia Kazan's "naming names" during the HUAC-era, Seitz argues that the movie is far more nuanced than that. Looking through a historical context, Seitz offers a fresh perspective on one of American cinema's shining jewels.
