The Brave: Directed by Johnny Depp. With Johnny Depp, Marlon Brando, Marshall Bell, Elpidia Carrillo. A down-on-his-luck American Indian recently released from jail is offered the chance to “star” as the victim of a snuff film, the resulting pay of which could greatly help his poverty stricken family.

“When this came on Tasmanian television, (oh yes) I did have some misgivings about staying up late to watch it. Then the u0026quot;directed by Johnny Deppu0026quot; came on and I thought….boy if Brando wasnu0026#39;t in this I am off to bed. But I sat up, watched it, and it one of those films that stays with you. The horror and the torture come later, and it is awful to think of this brave young man subjecting himself to these monsters, but that is the lure of the story I guess. Perfect casting by Depp, cant argue with the direction or the story. Itu0026#39;s bleak but somehow beautiful at the same time. Yes it shows the best and worst of humanity. Not something to watch with the family on a movie night, but it does deserve an audience…you will not enjoy it but you will remember it.”
