Astounding documentary about Marlon Brando
Regent Cinema – Britain's oldest cinema – was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures, kickstarting British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1896. Since its reopening in May 2015 the staff have been dedicated to both engaging with the cinemas legacy and ensuring its future, for audiences and filmmakers. When you hear the name Marlon Brando you may picture the heart-throb from A Streetcar Named Desire, the leonine businessman from Last Tango in Paris, or the august patron of The Godfather. Whatever you picture, that name is seared into the heads of the film world as a legend, one of the greatest actors of our time. Listen to Me Marlon deconstructs that image, takes us into the man’s head and shows us his humanity, his pain, his pride, his simultaneous love and disgust for his work. Most tragically, it shows us how the sins of the father may pass down the generations despite everyone’s best intentions. Certificate: 15. Valid ID required. Running time: 1 hour 40 minutes.
"the greatest, most searching documentary of an actor ever put on film."
