Listen to Me Marlon – SFIFF58 Excerpt by San Francisco Film Society

Director: Stevan Riley

A treasure trove of audio tapes yields a unique autobiographical portrait of one of cinema’s greatest actors: Marlon Brando. Augmented by home movies, film clips and other archival materials, the recordings reveal a frank, self-aware man, by turns funny, poignant, self-lacerating and beset by demons both inherited and of his own making. Director Stevan Riley weaves these elements together into a mesmerizing portrait of one of America’s great artists, illustrating his singular career and his troubled life.
