Storyline

Journalists from all over America meet Marlon Brando in a New York hotel room to interview him about his new film, Morituri. Seeing this as an opportunity to let the legendary actor promote the film, they find Brando unwilling to talk about it, instead he is more interested in larking about and turning on the charm when being interviewed by a former winner of the Miss USA competition.

Ingredient X!
6 August 2006 | by Antony RotunnoSee all my reviews

That's what Marlon Brando has got in abundance, and i must say that although it's only 25 minutes long, his performance here is better than a lot of his less than enthusiastic movie roles. He manages to constantly entertain while at the same time not compromising himself with cheap 'hukster' talk. He comes back often to the theme of thinking for yourself (as John Lennon, another of my idols, often did too)and not believing propaganda, and ingredient x comes out in the looks he gives which say a thousand words. When one of the interviewers says his new picture 'must be good' (or similar) his look said 'you didn't mean that', 'making movies is boring' etc....

I was impressed that most of the interviewers, after starting in her t.v voices and with a conventional approach, played along with Marlon and were funny themselves.

quite a rare film. i saw it by accident in the t.v listings today on BBC4 and watched it with joy. see it if you can!!
