Including two time Oscar winner Tom Hanks. As someone that majored in Theater Arts and studied and performed countless times, I'll go with fellow actors opinions. I'm not saying Brando was without talent, he represents the "method" acting technique which pretty much died out when Lee Strasberg passed on. Brando also was not terribly adept at picking choice roles. His later career AFTER The Godfather was pretty much littered with throwaway film trash...LOL! Unless of course you consider a Michael Jackson video worthy of the title cinematic "art"!
Brando's impact, it's far, far beyond his lifetime. Did you stop reading about film 50 years ago?
Brando had a major impact (their words) on De Niro, Pacino, Penn, Newman, Duvall, Bale.
Hanks? He's infamous for taking "method" acting so seriously it almost cost him his life on the film, "Castaway."
As far as Brando's later films, who really cares? He'd already established a spectacular list of performances.
