Brian Wilson's life is too big for a movie. The story of the brilliant and troubled co-founder of The Beach Boys barely lends itself to a coherent linear narrative, let alone a single film. Even these stories are a bit ambitious for a two-hour film, but Pohlad's carefully woven vignettes manage to hit the necessary notes and explode expectations of what a biopic can and should be.In telling the two stories, Pohlad cast two different actors to portray Wilson: Paul Dano and John Cusack.Many of the most invigorating scenes in the film take place in the recording studio as Wilson pushes the famed session musicians The Wrecking Crew past their musical comfort zones and into something bold and new.
