Description

LISTEN TO ME MARLON, the new documentary about Marlon Brando is receiving high praise for intimately examining one of the greatest actors in history. Director Stevan Riley shares the trailer, clips from the film, and insight about Brando’s early years and rise to Hollywood royalty through A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE and THE GODFATHER. The cryptic and fascinating audio tapes used by Brando for his auto-psychoanalysis, and explosive reaction to the documentary are all explored on BYOD--the world’s only all documentary talk show, hosted by Ondi Timoner. FILM & GUEST INFO: Unbeknownst to the public, Marlon Brando created a vast archive of personal audio materials over the course of his lifetime. Now — for the first time — those audio recordings come to life in LISTEN TO ME MARLON. Charting his exceptional career as an actor and his extraordinary life away from the stage and screen, the film reveals the complexities and contradictions that were Marlon Brando by telling the story in his own words. LISTEN TO ME MARLON ​is much less a factual recital of Brando’s acting career and personal life, than a creative odyssey into the mind and motivation of an enigma. Like an arch hypnotist Brando’s own voice lead the storytelling ­ there are no interviewees, no talking heads, just Marlon guiding us into the padlocked recesses of his own memory, and through the story of his life. STEVAN RILEY is director of RAVE AGAINST THE MACHINE (Channel 4), BLUE BLOOD (Warner Bros), FIRE IN BABYLON, EVERYTHING OR NOTHING (MGM/UA), and most recently, LISTEN TO ME MARLON.
