A documentary about Marlon Brando was next on my film schedule at TIFF. Friends and colleagues were assembled for this film, to discuss and pay tribute to the artist. It was interesting to hear Brando's history. His early work was great for the film fan, but I had no idea the impact it had on the careers of his costars and peers. Near the end of his life, comments from his family and close friends, like Johnny Depp, give insight and dimension to a film legend as a father, grandfather and friend. This film will be broadcast on Turner Classic Movie channel on May 1&2. Worth checking out!
