Brian Wilson is a genius. The scope and quality of the music he’s composed over his lifetime is testament to that. For a long time, he was a tortured genius.
Love & Mercy is Brian Wilson’s story and, unlike a lot of biopics, it doesn’t gloss over anything – Wilson has described it as ‘factual’ in a number of interviews since it was made. It is an absorbing look at Wilson’s life – as much of a look as can be covered in a couple of hours – and it one of the best biopics movies in years.
Morning, and the NPR announcer is filling in the details of the day ahead – new outbreaks of something called the Necroambulist Virus are down 30%. A young girl is stopped by police for missing curfew. Later we see a man, Wade Vogel, driving an old truck into town and visiting a quarantine area.
We learn he’s spent the last two weeks looking for his daughter, Maggie, and has been told she’s there. With its eerie score and slightly slower than deliberate pacing, this movie doesn’t seem to fit its star – Vogel is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger – but this is not an Ah-nuld movie by any stretch of the imagination.
