Love & Mercy

Brian Wilson heard sounds inside his head. Some of them were tanned shapes of pop music that would become the musical soul of California, even when they were new mutants or had less sexual charisma than a noodle stuck on a tile: the Beach Boys, that wisely garish mirror image of The Beatles. Love & Mercy reenacts two instants of those sounds: one is the recording of Pet Sounds back in the Sixties, the time when Wilson (Paul Dano) created his “sound farm” –a childish yet uprooted answer to the surfer hits that broke the Wilson family apart– and started to loose himself in his hyperactive and sharp genius –which could also cut to into the inside. The other moment is in the Eighties, when an adult Wilson (John Cusack) has become a merely amusing reference and a handful of mumbling, and a Cadillac saleswoman (that sunshine with a nymphomaniac smile called Elizabeth Banks) rescues him to give music one of his most refractory miracles back.
