Good documentary about one of the best actors of all time, Marlon Brando. Not a standard documentary in which everyone sings its praises. This is mainly due to the design in which Marlon Brando speaks the entire time using self-recorded, personal tape recordings. This allows you to get into the head of the actor/man a little more.

An unusual documentary about an unusual man or should I say extraordinary man.

In addition to the usual film fragments - here are some striking ones that marked a milestone in Brando's career - a lot of self-recorded audio work containing life experiences of the actor. A man who rarely exposed himself - Bertolucci tried it with his "Last Tango in Paris" and Brando felt a bit caught - but who did stand out for his ideas about racial discrimination (He refused an Oscar because of the hard attitude of the American stands towards the original inhabitants of the country and expressed this in a rousing plea in which even the western film genre was not spared). He sometimes denounced being an actor, calling himself a businessman, and once said, "I wish I had enough money to say 'screw it'." Let's take that with a grain of salt, but it is certain that he was a man who loved beauty, which he expressed with his idolization of the island of Tahiti and its inhabitants.

Such a documentary that paints an image of a very remarkable actor is always welcomed and is worthy of a best fiction film.

Masterfully constructed documentary about the life and career of Marlon Brando. The filmmakers were given exclusive access to personal film material and hundreds of hours of audio, from which they managed to put together a commentary track that fits perfectly with the footage shown. In this way, Brando himself provides commentary on the archive images and film fragments. The result is a compelling, often tragic portrait of a unique but troubled talent.
