His Voice. His Footage..His Life. Brando on Brando. With exclusive access to personal archive, this is the definitive Marlon Brando cinema documentary. Charting his exceptional career as an actor and extraordinary life away from the stage and screen; the film will fully explore the complexities of the man by telling the story uniquely from Marlon's perspective. There are no interviewers, no talking heads, just Marlon guiding us in this creative odyssey into the mind and motivation of an enigma.
Watchable for Brando fans

After the creepy opening sequence, the film ambles along at a slow pace with Brando presenting as a contrariwise personality. I was surprised to learn that he had actually recorded this as he lived his life. Not very much on the personal front ie girlfriends, wives etc. Mainly centred around his acting career. The bits touching on the alcohol issues of his parents and the demise of his offspring are really quite sad. Whatever his view of himself, it doesn't detract from his being one of the best actors of the twentieth century. If you like him then you should like this.

Brando shines a light on life

Powerful, thought provoking and revealing look at life from Brando's perspective. What an interesting and worthy man. I had no idea. I've ordered some of his films. I wish the world we have found ourselves in was more worthy of the best of us.
