Should have gone straight to DVD.
6 July 2011 | by (Glasgow Scotland) – See all my reviews

The life and loves of Marlon Brando as told through the drug fuelled ramblings of his son Christian ( Ricco Chapa) to a group of his fellow junkies who unfolds the story in chapters for the price of his next fix. Director and main lead Damien Chapa should have left the legacy and legend that was Brando alone,this low budget movie has some notably cringe-worthy moments and will certainly not win any awards for best make up or costume.It really does feel like a badly made for TV biopic with Chapa totally out of place as a young Brando starting out on his movie career and gets even worse as the character ages throughout the film. It feels like a movie made by a graduate of film school on his first project who has yet to grasp the fundamentals of cinematography and the rudiments of shooting in black and white. Many Brando devotees may not like some of the questionable accusations the film throws out about him and true admirers of the man will not,in my opinion enjoy this film at all.Overall a poorly shot,poorly acted movie which certainly leaves a lot to be desired.
