So you think you know everything there is to know about Marlon Brando? Filmmaker Steven Riley’s highly quotable biodoc on the totemic actor might show you something new. It’s based on an enormous cache of audio tapes — essentially Brando’s detailed oral diary of his entire career – played over a well chosen montage of film clips and archival candid footage. Won’t exactly change anyone’s opinion of the star of The Godfather and On the Waterfront, but should give movie-holics something to gnaw on (103 min.).
