Love & Mercy // Movie @ deciBel

From the organizer:

Love & Mercy (USA 2014)

Rottentomatoes: 90%
IMDB's score: 7.6

To label Love & Mercy a biopic about The Beach Boys' co-founder Brian Wilson would not only be misleading but also a disservice to the imaginative storytelling of director Bill Pohlad. This fact shines through most heavily in Pohlad's casting choices: Paul Dano and John Cusack. The two actors don't look alike, nor do they try to in their portrayals of Wilson at different stages of his life. Dano plays Wilson during the 60s, right after his first panic attack, when the singer withdrew from the band’s Japanese tour so that he could focus on composing their new album. Cusack portrays Wilson during the late 80s, when the musician was deep into therapy with the unorthodox and manipulative psychotherapist Eugene Landy (played by a scarily convincing Paul Giamatti) after suffering from auditory hallucinations and a mild form of manic-depression. What Love & Mercy successfully does is to open a door into Wilson’s head that might surprise even the biggest Beach Boys fans.
