The Village Voice calls it "a masterpiece" and David Edelstein lists it as "the greatest, most searching documentary of an actor ever put on film." According to Vanity Fair, it "is a compelling documentary about Marlon Brando compiled entirely from private audio tapes the actor recorded at home, in business meetings, during hypnosis, in therapy, and during press interviews."
Variety writes Brando's "complexity is limned as well as a documentary possibly could manage... Made with the full cooperation of the Brando estate, the pic is a superbly crafted collage whose soundtrack is as complexly textured as the curation and editing of visual elements." As Rolling Stone magazine summed it up, "You want Brando Confidential? Fine, you've got it."
