Watch Martin Scorsese Talk ‘On the Waterfront’ With The Criterion Collection

This month, the Criterion Collection will be releasing Elia Kazan’s 1954 "masterpiece of urban poetry" On the Waterfront. As always, their edition of the film will include a bevy of accompanying gems—this time, including alternate presentations of the restoration of the film in two additional aspect ratios: 1:85:1 (widescreen) and 1:33:1 (full-screen). The booklet for the feature will also include an essay by filmmaker Michael Almeryda, Kazan’s 1952 House Un-American Activities Committee testimony, one of the 1948 Malcomn Johnson articles that inspired the film, and a 1958 piece by screenwriter Budd Schulberg, all alongside a collection of other interviews, visual essays, and documentaries.

But one of the most wonderful features includes cinematic treasure himself Martin Scorsese in a new conversation with Kent Jones on the film and how inspired him as a young cinema-lover. Check out a clip from the interview below, and purchase the Criterion Collection edition of On the Waterfront HERE.
