We’ve all heard the stories. Robert DeNiro drove a taxi for 12 hours shift in New York to prepare for The Taxi. Heath Ledger locked himself up in his apartment to become as lonely as the Joker. Natalie Portman spent one year in a rigorous ballet program for The Black Swan. Marlon Brando did not move from a hospital bed for one month to get into the mindset of an injured veteran.

But what is method acting actually? It is a form of acting in which the actor never leaves his character. He portrays his character even he is not on screen.

The technique was founded by Konstantin Stanislavski, a seminal Russian theatre practitioner and actor. He is widely recognized as one of the most outstanding character actors.

Born in 1863, Konstantin invented a method, or a system of a set of techniques used by actors to portray emotions on stage by putting themselves in the place of the character. This documentary explains the method acting in depth.
