Stevan Riley’s extraordinary documentary Listen To Me Marlon hits cinemas this Friday. In addition to screening the film, we’ll also be hosting exclusive Q&As with the director at four of our London cinemas.

Edited together from his many audio diaries and interviews, Listen To Me Marlon tells the incredible story of Marlon Brando’s life and career as narrated posthumously by the man himself. Here’s what the critics have to say:

‘Totally unmissable… one of the most unusual and best documentaries of the year.’ – Paul Heath, The Hollywood Reporter ★★★★★

‘Haunting… Finally, eleven years after his death, Brando is talking.’ – Rob Wallis, The Metropolist ★★★★

‘Riley has managed to construct a tribute to the actor that his fans have long deserved.’ – Nigel M Smith, The Guardian ★★★★

‘A must-see’ – Matthew Turner, The List ★★★★

‘No superlatives can do justice to Riley’s editing… we really do feel as though we’re inside Brando’s mind.’ – Matt Zoller Seitz, rogerebert.com ★★★★

‘Some sound. Some fury! Using film clips, archival footage and a stash of Brando’s personal audio recordings, Riley has created an elegant collage and poetic illumination… Listen to Me Marlon is an offer so intimate that no film fan should refuse.’ – Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail ★★★★

‘Superbly crafted… it almost feels as if [Brando] assembled the film himself from beyond the grave.’ – Dennis Harvey, Variety
