Just Watched …

Love & Mercy, directed by Bill Pohlad. This is a really intelligent and interesting film about musician Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, even if you’re not an admirer of the band. Great performances all round and wonderful exploration of a life via the imaginative intercutting of past and present, reality and hallucination. At least one reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey and a splendid ending.

  1. Have just seen the film too and was very impressed by everyone’s performance as well as the intelligent treatment of an inspirational story. Would like to see it again…
