    Introduced me to the movies, and to life. I\'ve been staring at that damn screen ever since but have never seen its equal. The search goes on.

    A “Streetcar Named Desire” grows on you as the film progresses, as many people have the ability to put themselves in such a position as Blanche. I am not speaking of the exact situation, but all of us have lost something or someone at some point in our lives and would much rather keep things quiet rather than have our information put out on the street for other to know about. The fact that Blanche, Stella, Stanley and Mitch all suffer a loss throughout film shows the reader that karma is a goes around come around kind of thing. As the film moves forward the viewer realizes that Blanche was once from a wealthy family but eventually looses the house due to the family’s death, Stella who has not been home in many years is married to a horrible husband (Stanley) whom live in a cramped apartment. Then there is Mitch who finds out about Blanche’s past and does not show to her birthday dinner. Overall the movie is captivating in the sense that one finds themselves relating to the characters in one form or another, because if we could not relate to the characters I am not sure this film would have been as popular.
