Director: Stevan Riley
Writers: Stevan Riley, Peter Ettedgui (co writer)
Stars: Marlon Brando
With exclusive access to his extraordinary unseen and unheard personal archive including hundreds of hours of audio recorded over the course of his life, this is the definitive Marlon Brando cinema documentary. Charting his exceptional career as an actor and his extraordinary life away from the stage and screen with Brando himself as your guide, the film will fully explore the complexities of the man by telling the story uniquely from Marlon's perspective, entirely in his own voice. No talking heads, no interviewees, just Brando on Brando and life.
When Brando was young and screwing his way around New York, he was the hottest hottie in town. Then he got boring and fat. Still a great actor but interested in almost everything but his career. A lot of information about his whereabouts but not so much about his ideas, ideals and what he did. Seemingly drifted from woman to woman, guided by the direction his dick pointed. 17 children by 15 women! Whoa! That is a big legacy, but his relationships with his progeny are not discussed. Do these brothers and sisters even know each other's names? Strange man in a world of his own making. He was amazing on Broadway in his early years. Later on, the aimless self-indulgent hedonism took its toll. A sad, burn-out who ultimately is remembered for his extraordinary talent.
