msmichel's rating of the film Love & Mercy

A total surprise. Expected the standard Hollywood biopic and almost avoided the theatrical run. Instead we have a capture of distorted genius, prescription destruction and (near) divine creation. Love or hate The Beach Boys one must admit Wilson's production work was extraordinary creating some of the most stunning soundscapes ever captured in pop. The dual narrative in the end works well. A film for music fans.
