Brando doc on Showtime this Saturday!

Listen to Me Marlon-posterI had emergency gallbladder surgery a little over three weeks ago, which kind of slowed me down a bit. At least I’m able to blame this latest lapse on something other than procrastination. I’m just now getting back to working on a post for this blog, my first since October 2. I’ve started writing short takes on the films I saw last week, but we’re leaving tomorrow on a five-day trip to Minneapolis, and that won’t get finished until we return. Though earlier today I opened the new issue of The New Yorker to see an announcement that Listen to Me Marlon, a great documentary about Marlon Brando, will be aired on Showtime this Saturday, November 14, at 9:00 pm. I wanted to get the word out, so I’m knocking this out quickly. You’ve got to see this amazing film, if you haven’t already. It takes us inside Brando’s life and thought in a completely unique way. It’s a must-see.

Last July I wrote about the film in a post titled Listening to Marlon — Beyond the Screen, which can be accessed here. – Ted Hicks
