This is an extraordinary and comprehensive view of the great man's life.
"Brando" gives us knowledge of this enigmatic acting giant. It shows aspects of his life that most people are unaware of. I like the way it gives facts from people who knew him through work and/or friendship. It neither sugarcoats nor demonizes him. The film clips from his beginning to his end are amazing. What impressed me the most was that it didn't attempt to psychoanalyze him as some biographies do. It leaves the viewer with things to talk about and think about. Most of all, it makes you want to read, watch and learn more about this fascinating character. The film is almost three hours, yet it seemed to whiz by. I watched it a second time and even enjoyed it more!. There's a tremendous amount of information to absorb. Watch it and then see some of his great films you might have missed.
