I wish I had a better way with words

An amazing film which shows how strong Brian Wilson really is if he can survive all that he went through and come out the other side and be the performer that he is today.His music will still be talked about in 50 years time,the music that a generation grew up to and the music that's making a new generation of fans realise that there's more to music than image and miming.He has quite rightly earned his place among the few artists who deserve to be called a genius. A film that is a must for any Brian Wilson/Beach Boys fan.
