The contender, part 2 by Anne-Katrin Titze

Stevan Riley's look at Marlon Brando in Listen to Me Marlon: "Art was often paralleling his life. Guys and Dolls reflected his need for levity."

At the Sundance premiere, James Franco, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin attended screenings of Stevan Riley's Listen To Me Marlon. In New York, Stevan and I discussed Marlon Brando's self-hypnosis tapes, political involvement, lying for a living and his ability to be a mimic in films such as The Teahouse Of The August Moon, The Godfather, Mutiny On The Bounty, The Young Lions, Viva Zapata! and Sayonara.

A soft wind blows and Marlon hypnotises himself back to a time when he was very young, walking down the sidewalk in Omaha or sitting in the shade of an old oak tree. If only his mother hadn't been "the town drunk" and if only he didn't hate his father so much, this could have been paradise. »

Marlon Brando

What do Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango In Paris, Elia Kazan's A Streetcar Named Desire, On the Waterfront, and Viva Zapata!, Daniel Mann's The Teahouse Of The August Moon, Edward Dmytryk's The Young Lions, Gillo Pontecorvo's Burn!, Lewis Milestone's Mutiny On The Bounty, Guys And Dolls directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and One-Eyed Jacks have in common? Brando the movie star in Stevan Riley's documentary, Listen To Me Marlon, becomes Marlon, the man.

After a conversation with Parabellum director Lukas Valenta Rinner at New Directors/New Films, I met up with Stevan at Lincoln Center.

"Brando was himself fascinated by these same topics of truth and lies, of myth and fantasy and reality."

Hundreds of hours of Brando's audio recordings had gone unheard until Riley took his pick and put together this fascinating portrait. »
