About the Movie
A documentary about the life of Brian Wilson, the musical mastermind and songwriter for the Beach Boys. The film examines the ups and downs of Wilson's life, including the early years of the Beach Boys, his years of substance abuse, and his long road to recovery.
I saw this film at the Film Forum in NYC when it first came out. I wasn't a Beach Boys fan when I went into the theater, but afterwards, I felt that I had never heard their music and had to own all of it right that minute. I spent the next few years periodically immersing myself in not only the music (and producing) of Brian Wilson, but the tragic story of his family. Don Was did a great job of capturing Brian in very lucid moments, and I think about this film whenever I hear a BB song.
