Um, Marlon Brando Seems To Be Having A VERY BAD DAY…
When one of the world’s most difficult Actors decides he’s not happy with a film, you can only imagine how disastrous the result will be…well, imagine no more!
“Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau”
I love stories ABOUT the movies, and this documentary takes a very revealing behind the scenes look at one of the world’s worst movies EVER!
Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer starred in the 1996 film “The Island Of Dr. Moreau”, widely considered one of the biggest disasters ever released! Now, there is a documentary that looks at how the clash of visions, bad creative decisions, lack of interest by the Actors and really bad weather plagued the film. Check out the trailer:
It all began when Brando showed up to the film’s set looking like this – and it just went downhill from there. As the trailer pointed out, Brando’s demand to have a diminutive co-star with him at all times made life miserable for Director Richard Stanley…
It’s almost his bizarre parody of “Apocalypse Now”…anyway, the documentary tells one horrible behind-the-scenes story after the other…Brando was impossible to work with…but at least he had his makeup done cheap…
The story of the film was simple: a mad Doctor turns his private island into a laboratory, where he creates a new super species…and goes mad in the process:
This documentary look s at all of the problems making the film, not helped by Val Kilmer’s on set antics as well…
I can’t wait to see this movie, as I love the “behind-the-scenes” stuff that goes down on film…and Brando has some of the best stories of all!

and of course, Brando clashed with Coppola again, on the set of the greatest anti-war film of all time:
There is a brilliant documentary that captures all of that conflict as well…Eleanor Coppola’s terrific “Hearts Of Darkness:
In the case of “The Godfather” and “Apocalypse Now”, the brilliant ends justified the means…but what if a troubled film ends up turning out – LIKE THIS?
Hard to believe, but “Troll 2” is often mentioned in the same breath as “Dr. Moreau” for worst film ever made…and now there is a documentary that looks at the cult that has sprung up around it!
“Best Bad Movie!”
This great documentary looks at the making of “Troll 2” in 1990, and its journey from being crowned the “worst film of all time” to a cherished cult classic.
Check out the trailer:
“Best Worse Movie” was made by the child actor from the movie! He interviews the cast about how the movie changed their lives. He also interviews the Director, who insists that “Troll 2” is a great film!
There have been a number of great documentaries that look at the film making process – here is another favorite of mine:
If you haven’t seen the movie that introduces you to “Mark and Mike”, then check out my story here:
And here is a book that chronicles a modern masterpiece!
Yes, “The Room” is legendary for so many reasons, and Greg Sestero’s terrific book chronicles it all form the inside…read all about it here:
Tommy Wiseau made one of the greatest, most inept films ever, and that’s what makes “The Room” so entertaining!
Sometimes films are so bad they are good – and sometimes you watch them with THIS look on your face:
