Tennessee Williams

Haven't watched The Fugitive Kind, yet, but I picked it up during a Criterion half-price sale along with a few other Tennessee Williams based films including The Night of the Iguana and Suddenly, Last Summer. Saw Street Car on the big screen during a local theater's summer movie series. It's a tour de force in that format.

Last of the Mobile Hotshots is another Williams story directed by Sidney Lumet.

Baby Doll contains a treasure trove of quotes.

During my studies as an English major, I was sucked into the Southern Gothic genre. Wise Blood based on Flannery O'Connor's first novel dir. by John Huston and God's Little Acre based on Erskine Caldwell's novel are a couple of other films in this genre that are worth a look.

A film not in the Southern Gothic genre, but which includes a performance as strong as some of Brando's is East of Eden. James Dean knocks it out of the park in that one. The opening scene is epic.
