Listen to Me Marlon

Marlon Brando was one of the greatest actors of his generation, delivering tour-de-force performances in films such as A Dry White Season, The Godfather, Julius Caesar, Last Tango In Paris, On The Waterfront, Sayonara, A Streetcar Named Desire and Viva Zapata!, which earned him two Academy Awards as Best Actor and a further six nominations. He was also an enigma and wildly unpredictable, refusing to pander to the public or the media. In Stevan Riley's fascinating documentary, we are granted access to Brando's self-hypnosis tapes and his estate's archive of personal materials to witness the actor self-analyse in his own words, candidly discussing his numerous flaws and the people he hurt in the process of becoming a Hollywood star. Through this patchwork of private confessions and news reports, we gain a clearer insight into the demons which drove Brando to greatness and sometimes proved his undoing.
