5.0 out of 5 starsa must see.

"Listen to Me Marlon" is a superb experience. Experience, because it is not a traditional straightforward biopic documentary. It is told by Brando himself, using audiotapes that he was recording during his life. We do get so see glimpses and most important aspects from his life from a childhood till the end. It shows a bit about the infamous movies he made. But more it is about listening to his thoughts, and they are haunting. It is like listening to extended version of Kurtz himself.

Overall, i highly enjoyed "Listen to Me Marlon". It is informative, superbly paced and very self confident and fascinating documentary. It is a haunting experience, not for everyone i guess, but if you liked the acting of this screen legend and would like to go a bit beyond the face of a man, "Listen to Me Marlon" is a must see.

5.0 out of 5 starsSuch a great film..

This is such a moving film. I can’t say how glad I am that I bought it. I grew up on old movies—thanks to my Mom—and all these many years later, I’m still fascinated and appreciative of Marlon Brando. We are so very lucky that he recorded his thoughts and feelings.. and everyone responsible for putting this documentary together did an amazing job. It gives us such an incredibly personal view of someone so understandably private. If you are a Brando fan in any way, you will want to watch this. The fact that he narrates the whole thing (because of his recordings) is such a gift to those who want to understand him better.

5.0 out of 5 starsMarlon in his old age.
Verified purchase
More relax in his old age, Marlon reviews his life and meditates. Always ahead of his time he experiments with high tech.
It is touching to hear his voice explaining his process and see the home where he lived and where he read 4000 books.

5.0 out of 5 starsSo insightful and moving
Verified purchase
This truly helps you understand the beautiful tormented soul this talented actor had. He is a legend for so many reasons and this video helps shed light on his personal challenges, his need to be self sufficient, and his need of unconditional love. I was absolutely moved to see/hear such inner beauty.

I tried to get this from Netflix to no avail. Very interesting video into the behind the scenes of one of America's greatest actors. I recommend this to all interested in acting, the theater, and film. I love it.

2.0 out of 5 starsTurn the music down, director person.
Verified purchase
If only the music were as good as it was loud, or as soft as it was good. It was just so distracting, I couldn't enjoy what was otherwise a really well done doc.

4.0 out of 5 starsWatch and enjoy!

I enjoyed it and to hear Brando's own words gave it more meaning. He was troubled and like so many of us, he was a product of his parents dysfunction.

5.0 out of 5 starsI was reminded just what a truly brilliant actor he was
Verified purchase
I think it is one of the and most sincere doc bio I have ever seen . As an artist myself the most candid advice about the the show business. I was reminded just what a truly brilliant actor he was . Fame is a gift and a burden even if it is not PC to say so. In many ways he set the ba bar high. Every film and drama student should be required to see this ffilm . Discuss
