Brando The LeprechaunReviewed byshawnblackmanVote: 6/10

This is one film you never really see anywhere. This one takes place before Turn Of The Screw, the novel by Henry James. A huge manor situated on a vast amount of land located in England is the setting. It takes place around early 1900's. The house is occupied by two children whose parents were killed in accident leaving them in the care of the master of the house. A housekeeper takes care of the day to day operations leaving the nanny to tend to the kids. There is a groundskeeper as well played by Marlon Brando and yes he does use his Brand 'O style of acting. The master of the house wants nothing to do with anybody so he leaves to another dwelling telling the housekeeper only to contact him if someone dies basically. The film then shows the relationship of Brando and the nanny which involves sado masochistic things. The kids idolize Brando copying everything he does since he has been the only parent figure they have had, but Brando has several issues.

This was a good slow burning film as it develops all the characters and then the build up for Turn Of The Screw. Brando's a kinky bastard in this one probably still holding the butter from Last Tango In Paris. You even get to see a frog explode from smoking a cigar. It would have been a perfect stop smoking commercial.

If you don't mind Brando talking like a wee leprechaun and the odd sex scene with ropes then you'll like this flick. It does have a bitter ending.

Another Poor Effort from Marlon BrandoReviewed bySAVote: 1/10

Originally I would have given this film a 3 out of 10 but I read the reviews and I disagree with all of them so I gave it a one. First of all, Marlon Brando has no range. If he is not mumbling, he is overextending himself. Brando is the most overrated actor in history. After Mutiny on the Bounty, he lost his status in Hollywood. He regained it with the Godfather. This was made before the Godfather.

If you only saw On the Waterfront, A Streetcar Named Desire or the Godfather, you would think that he was a great actor. I saw those films first and wanted to see more of his movies. However, each movie of his reveals more flaws than any perceived greatness.

In this film, the Nightcomers, Brando is either overacting or not acting at all. He stands around and broods as the camera pans. I don't care about Quint, who is a bum but stays employed because the new guardian of the children doesn't care. Guess what? Neither do I. The children and the rest of the supporting cast are plastic toys used poorly by Michael Winner, the director. A great actor could have made something of this script and a great director could have made something of this pathetic actor. Neither showed up for the shoot. There is good material for a film but everyone handles their roles so poorly that the film rambles on without a point. It is extremely boring.

Whether or not it was a prequel or not does not matter at all. Brando is saying, "I'm Brando doing Brando acting and you're going to like it because I'm Brando, d***it." I keep thinking of Eddie Murphy as Gumby when I watch Brando.

My advice: Watch a Bogart film. Bogart is enjoyable to watch even if the film is awful. Or watch the Godfather, On the Waterfront or A Streetcar Named Desire. Every other film of Brando's irritated me to no end.

Cruelty without irony...Reviewed bymoonspinner55Vote: 3/10

Prequel to Henry James' "The Turn Of the Screw" attempts to show how the two young British children at the center of that story became so disturbed. It turns out the creepy caretaker at their manor (Marlon Brando) seduced their passive nanny into an S&M relationship. Interesting concept, yet director Michael Winner's ham-fisted execution of the material is surely not inviting for an audience (it plays like an R-rated version of "The Innocents"). Damp, creepy atmospherics and a potentially engrossing narrative are each mitigated by Winner's sledgehammer style, which doesn't allow for anything loftier than shock moments (no psychological overtones here!). Soap buffs will be stunned to see ice queen Stephanie Beacham in such a role (although she does garner points for bravery). As for Brando, this is right in keeping with his repertoire of offbeat roles, and he seems to delight in the vulgarity. There's a streak of nastiness running through this film that isn't provocative--just repellent. *1/2 from ****
