I really enjoyed and admired Listen To Me Marlon — an intimate, fascinating, full-scope portrait that turns rather sad during the final 20 minutes. Fascinating, never-before-seen footage. I’d read Marlon Brando‘s autobiography (“Songs My Mother Taught Me“) but until I saw Stevan Riley‘s doc last January I’d never heard him really open up. His recollections and reflections almost shook my lifelong suspicion that he’d allowed defeatism and bitterness to consume him over the last 30 years of his life. Directed and edited by Riley, produced by John Battsek. A select theatrical release on 7.29 plus some kind of exclusive Showtime airing.
