1952. USA. Dir: Elia Kazan. With Marlon Brando, Anthony Quinn. 113 min.
This sensuous and earthy Mexico Western sees Brando embrace the title role of a farmer who leads his people in revolution, but then must contemplate how to avoid becoming an oppressor himself. The rugged southwestern landscape frees city-boy Kazan and echoes the humble nobility of its protagonists. Intro by Marc Longenecker, Center for Film Studies.
