Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On The Waterfront [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
Just got my UK Blu Ray copy today of this classic movie once again the UK market lose out!!!!!!!!!!! i cannot believe that Sony have dropped the fantastic audio commentary that was on the original 2001 DVD release by Brando's biographer Richard Schickel.This is not good enough what is the excuse for this all we get is the interview with director Elia Kazan,and a mastering method featurette which is at least to be expected.This film was one of Brando's classic performances and was awarded 8 Oscars one of which went to Marlon Brando,and to Kazan for direction this was one of Columbia pictures gems and has not been given the treatment it deserved.Shame on Sony i shall contact them and see what comments if any they make. Regarding the Hi Def transfer the 60 year old movie looks great but collectors and fans will be disappointed,not even any chapter points are included on the menu what on earth is going on pointless cost cutting.I will hang onto my old 2001 DVD copy because these so called film people just cant get it right hope this helps with your purchase of this Blu Ray.

All the Sony releases are paltry in comparison to the US Criterion edition, which has 10 more extras including a commentary, see Andrew Miller's review below or dvdbeaver.
