There's an eerie, unearthly fascination to this documentary ...

Listen to Me Marlon is an offer so intimate that no film fan should refuse.

It's a one-of-a-kind film about a one-of-a-kind screen legend, a man who transformed acting without ever really knowing what he thought of it.

A fascinating and extraordinary journey.

More than a Hollywood bio, Listen to Me Marlon is a story of demons being passed from one generation to the next.

It's as if Riley has ushered us into the darkened chamber of the actor's memories, where Brando himself can whisper in our ear.

It's a thoroughly subjective and effective attempt to capture how it must have felt to be Marlon Brando.

A wondrously sly, moving, odd portrait-perfectly befitting its subject.

The definitive portrait of a man still frequently cited as the world's greatest actor.
