BRANDO. Mimi FREEDMAN - Leslie GREIF 2007 - 02:45

The enigmatic and unparalleled Marlon Brando is examined in a new original documentary, Brando.
The unmistakable voice, striking good looks and eccentric personality - and the complex inner life they cloaked: This portrait sifts through the mystery behind one of Hollywood’s most-respected and celebrated practitioners of the art and craft of acting, Brando. Piecing together performances from throughout the decades with never-before-seen footage and a series of original, in-depth interviews featuring not only his Hollywood peers but also family members and childhood friends, this film worked to unmask the man behind the exceptional talent, captivating persona and apathy (frequent aversion) toward his profession that was Marlon Brando and investigated the challenges he faced in almost every
