RIP Elia Kazan, one of the great film directors of all time. After Casablanca, On the Waterfront is the film I can quote the most dialogue from verbatim. I remember when Kazan got his honorary Oscar in 1999, I afterwards loved the Hollywood people who stood up and applauded him, like Kurt Russell and Kathy Bates. The people who pointedly refused to applaud--Ed Harris and Amy Madigan, Goldie Hawn, Nick Nolte--have had my scorn ever since.
