Love & Mercy



A month ago or so, Walter and I had a chance to watch a film together here in Winnipeg. We saw Love & Mercy, which is based on the life of Brian Wilson, the lead singer/songwriter for the Beach Boys. But this is no ordinary biopic.

Love & Mercy gets a solid ***+ and two mugs up.

  1. Well said. The non-linear and vague telling of the early part of the story was either brilliant or a little frustrating depending on how you look at it. It's frustrating because I want to have a clearer understanding of what happened to him and what factors might have contributed most. But the truth may well be that a clear storyline of Wilson's breakdown is simply not available or reliable, and so the movie's depiction is exactly where we are left in trying to understand and wonder.
