Bill Pohlad Amerika Serikat, 2014

Addy K.'s rating of the film Love & Mercy

Tour-de-force acting (Dano is feral as the young Brian Wilson; Cusack counterpoints perfectly as older version with naif-like vulnerability) + artful cinematography (Robert Yeoman's sins from Feig's SPY washed clean) + sharp writing (Oren Moverman sneaks in a joke about Matzo ball soup) + freaky deeky sound design = Bill Pohlad's exceedingly metaphorical biopic that screams "I AM ART!". Extra point: Elizabeth Banks.
